Organ - moderate
Ten Settings for organ. Composed by Franklin D Ashdown. Sacred, Non-Seasonal. Collection. Published by Augsburg Fortress (AU.9781506413587).

Item Number: AU.9781506413587

The "adagio" has emerged over the centuries as a musical genre characterized by slow tempo, serene lyricism, and soaring melody. My new collection, Adagios of Hope and Peace: Ten Settings for Organ, includes 8 hymn-based compositions plus 2 free-style works which evoke feelings of tranquility and quiet assurance. These pieces are particularly designed for funeral and memorial services, but may be equally useful as preludes and offertories.
