This work was composed for an organ with 2 manuals and pedals minimum. It would make for not only effective recital and lesson material but a place could be easily found for it in the worship service where the Choral might serve as a general prelude or offertory, with the Fugue reserved possibly for the postlude. This work opens with the theme in the bass line, unharmonized. It is then introduced in the soprano and harmonized in 4 parts. A section follows in which this theme is reintroduced in the relative key as a 3-part canon at the octave. A 2nd theme is then introduced as a 3-part canon at the octave in the subdominant key. In the final concluding section both themes are combined, and this section ends quietly in 5 voices with a double pedal. The bold 4 voice Fugue which follows is written in triple counterpoint with 2 countersubjects maintained throughout. Its subject begins on scale degree 1 and is supplied with a real answer in the dominant. The music then passes through all nearly related keys. This Fugue is remarkable in that it includes a redundant (5th) entry in the exposition during which the subject and both countersubjects are inverted. The final entry of the subject in the home key is in the bottom octave of the pedal, following many examples left to us by J.S. Bach. The Fugue ends by segmenting the subject, alternating between the pedal and top line. This music finishes with the full power of the organ on a heavily accented chord in spread harmony in 8 voices and a double pedal. In this work the stretch for the hands is kept at an octave or less. Registration suggestions along with indications for hand division are included with the score. Length: 123 measures. Duration: 5:35. Composers Bio page: OrganBench.com .
