Three Liturgical Improvisations

Quick Overview

The Oxford Organ Library

: Orgel

This set of three organ improvisations, each based on a liturgical text, is written in a quintessentially English style: largely diatonic but not unremittingly consonant, flowingly melodic, texturally rich, and steered away from predictability by constantly varying bar- and phrase-lengths. Organists will find this a usefully versatile set of voluntaries, or an unusual and rewarding recital piece.
