    HASSAN'S ADAGIO - oriental organ music

    Here is a musical prayer in oriental style played on pipe organ for Hassan's memory.
    Hassan came from Turquey and lived in Bourges with his French wife, not far from my home. He found a job consisting in cleaning a forest. The first day he was working near by a road almost desert. But two cars very fast arrived, one from Bourges, the other from Vierzon and they crashed exactly at the only place where they should have never crashed. The two drivers were only wounded but they had killed a man. Hassan was a muslim but his wife has asked a mass for him in Bourges Cathedral. I have written this music for her and for her children.

    What a wonderful piece and memorial for him. I can really hear the arabic influence and can almost hear camels walking across the desert.Extend my condolences to her and her family from an American. Thanks for allowing us to hear the music,

    Very nice, a very clever combination of tone colors.
