The title of this solo—Tombeau—literally means "tomb," in a musical sense similar to that used by composers from the seventeenth through the twentieth centuries for pieces intended to honor the memory of distinguished personages. From early times, it has been customary for the creators of tombeaux and similar works to make at least some allusion to the styles of those composers they have chosen to commemorate musically. In this case, the baroque style is vividly evoked, with particular reference to the sonatas of J. S. Bach.

(Publisher's Note: Joseph Dillon Ford discussed this piece with the dedicatee, Raymond Lohengrin and changes to the ending were suggested but never actually carried out before the composer's death. I have therefore published it in the most recent version available for the time being).
