Suite for Organ
The Suite for Organ is in five movements. Each movement lasts c.5 minutes, except the last, which lasts c.10.
The Suite may be performed as a whole, selected movements may be played together, or movements may be played individually. Although the Suite is essentially a concert work, the individual movements are suitable for use as voluntaries.
Mov I: Intrada This movement evokes something of the sound world of Kenneth Leighton, although Intrada is not a Leighton pastiche. It is a dissonant but tonally-centred movement that explores the relationships between contrasting ideas. It has great rhythmic drive and acidic harmonies.
Mov II: Aria This movement contains both lyrical melodies and contrapuntal writing.
Mov III: Fugue This mercurial movement is more scherzo than fugue – although getting your fingers and feet around it is no joke!
Mov IV: Scena Sensuous and just a little bit French, this movement calls for delicious registrations and a real sense of drama.
Mov V: Toccata-Sortie This grand finale to the Suite is a white-hot pot-boiler that has audiences on the edge of their seats. Its performance requires stamina (particularly on a mechanical action instrument), agility and (most of all) a huge amount of flair.
