Item Number: S0.447201

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, as its name implies, it could serve as a suitable closing postlude.  This is a 4 voice stand alone fugue worked in quadruple counterpoint with 3 countersubjects maintained throughout.  Its subject starts on scale degree 1 and is supplied with a real answer in the dominant.  An unusual bridge section of 4 voice polyphony employing an ascending sequence during which the pedal line continues links the exposition with the ensuing entry in the relative key (e minor).  As the remaining entries proceed through all related keys and one unrelated key (A Major) the subject and countersubjects enter in the bass at least once.  Episodes separating the various entries are in 2 voices (alto and tenor) and, save for one instance which employs another ascending sequence in the same rhythm as the 1st bar of the subject, are constructed using inversions of the subject and countersubjects.  A stretto section in 3 voice trio texture links the penultimate entry with the final entry and undergoes a crescendo with the addition of stops and couplers.  A short coda employing the melodic curves of the subject and countersubjects and the addition of a 5th voice rounds out the work.  This piece ends with great finality with the full power of the instrument, repays careful study, and makes a very solid addition to the organist's contemporary repertoire.  Length:  101 measures.  Duration:  3:19.  Composer's Bio page:
