Douglas Bell (b. 1932) — Rhapsody on a Theme by Widor (2010) for organ

“Rhapsody on a Theme by Widor” (2010) is based on a fragment of melody from the second movement of Charles-Marie Widor’s "Symphonie gothique." Bell takes the melody and treats it within his modal, contrapuntal style, resulting in a very different context from the undulating cantilena of Widor’s symphony.

English composer Douglas Bell served as organist of St. Bartholomew's Church, Marsden, near Huddersfield, England from 1955 until 2003. He was a student of Francis Jackson and holds a Fellowship certificate from the Royal College of Organists. Bell has composed and published many organ works. In addition to his musical pursuits, Bell played professional cricket for the teams of Huddersfield, Marsden, and Elland.
