This meditative piece may be suitable for recitals and for devotional use, especially for the Lenten and Good Friday services; it depicts sorrow and grief. The middle section, marked as Piu Mosso, has the recurring main theme in the first movement and is less sombre than the first section of this piece. It builds up speed and sound intensity as a relief from the dark sound of the earlier section, depicting one's longing for love and hope. After the climax has been reached, the pace and the tone colors diminish in intensity and restates the somber theme. The piece ends quietly with a B major chord. Adagio requires attention to phrasing and imaginative use of organ registration. Organ registration, stated at the beginning of this movement, is a suggestion; if the 8' stops sound a little dull, then one may use a light 4' flute stop to help bring out the melody. If you are looking for a work to play for a church service, why not take a look at it.
