As I am a bit handicapped at the moment (broken wrist, torn knee ligaments) I am on the lookout for organ music that can be played with one hand and one foot. It turns out that there is no music at all specifically written for one hand and one foot. At least not that I have been able to find. So I decided to create something myself. And that became a Lamento for one hand and one foot (read about it here:

When I had finished that piece, an new idea arose: could I write a Trio for one hand and one foot? That would sound as if it were a Trio played with two hands and two feet?

As inspiration I listend to the music of Georg Andreas Sorge. Not only to his Trios, but also his choral preludes. I borrowed two bars from Sorge's prelude "Ein Lämlein geht" ( And build my trio around that fragment.

Except the two bars borrowed from Sroge the music my own invention. In the second half of the Trio the bass line of the main idea of the first half is inverted to create some music with a strong link to the first half of the piece.

I had to keep both upper voices within a none from each other to be able to play them with one hand. And the bass voice does not use too many notes, to keep it playable with one foot. This part could actually also be played with the left hand and a suitable registrion of 16-feet stops. Hence the title: you can play it with two hands or with one hand and one foot.
