Album for organ solo from the composer of the much-recorded MiroirŒî. The album consists of four pieces of between 2 and 4 minutes duration respectively. Play it cool!Œî was composed as the mandatory test piece in the 2012 First Breda International Organ Competition, with the Grote Kerks four-manual Flentrop/Van den Heuvel instrument in mind. As the titlesuggests, the piece makes great play on syncopated, jazz- and rock-infl ected figures. Suitable for advanced standard performers. The Messengeron the HillŒî, while similarly syncopated and witty, is within easy reac h of intermediate standard players. Laid out for two-manual instrument it features an almost continuous oscillating left-hand figure with right-hand melody and a very simple pedal part. Rejoice!Œî is an arrangement of a work for saxophone and organ, made at the request of, and in collaboration with, Thomas Trotter. A duo for contrasting manuals, with a simple, syncopated bass part in the pedals. Suitable for advanced standard performers. ____PassacagliaŒî, also for two-manual instrument, is composedalmost entirely for the white notes. The simple passacaglia theme is re peated throughout on the pedals. Above this, melodic material derived from the theme is played in the right hand against a sustained, chordal left-hand accompaniment. Later on, there is dialogue between the hands, with some optional ornamentation in the right hand. Suitable for intermediate standard performers.
