The Finale starts with a fanfare passage followed by a toccata section that consists of the recurring main theme of the first movement. The toccata is written in the French late romantic style and uses the augmented triads extensively. For those of you who listen to Louis Vierne's organ symphonies and other organ works may like to explore this work. In the last few pages of this piece, the pedal and the soprano lines are treated canonically, using the cyclical theme, and slow toward the Maestoso where the fanfare makes its final statement. One might associate the opening and the closing statement of the fanfare with a biblical statement from the Book of Revelations: I Am Alpha and Omega. The composition of a work that uses cyclical themes dates back to many hundreds of years; composers such as Guillaume Machaut's Messe De Notre Dame (composed in the 14th century), Johann Sebastian Bach's Wachet Auf, Richard Wagner's Ring Cycle, and Louis Vierne's Sixth Organ Symphony employed cyclical themes to their compositions. This movement is suitable for recitals and for Easter Sunday Pageant. This work definitely brings the entire organ sonata to a triumphant conclusion. Enjoy it.
