I was riffling through the scores I've downloaded over the months and came upon the book of postludes that this piece comes from. I suspect it was downloaded via a link from one of Agnus Dei's recordings as he's uploaded many of the pieces from it, including this piece ... at a rather more sedate pace as it turns out, though I didn't listen to his version until I'd recorded mine. The biographical notes are his. (Thank you, David.)
It's quite fun to play and one of the more "normal" pieces in the collection. Some of them are rather odd to my way of thinking and don't always fall under the hands and feet as you expect, partly because he doesn't believe in writing four notes in a chord when he can write eight.
I might recordsome of the other pieces.
