    Need Help Fingering Durufle Prelude sur l'Introit

    Hi everyone! I'm working on this Durufle piece and there are a few measures that I'm having trouble finding a comfortable fingering for and hoping I could get some help from here.

    In the above section, it's the second measure that gives me trouble. I've given you the measure before to see how it leads in. It's mainly the last beat I can't find a nice legato fingering for. Also, both hands are on the same manual at this point.

    This one is the trickiest for me so far. The right hand is on the great and the left hand is on the swell. The second measure in the right hand is where I'm having difficulty. I have big hands, but I can't get the alto voice legato. Suggestions?

    Thank you in advance for any help!

    All the best,
    Jim

    Jim, have sent you a personal message re suggested fingering and ways of sending it to you. - Not too clever technologically unfortunately!

    However, I think (in your first excerpt) taking the tenor E into the right hand [41 swopping to 52 on the tied DF, then 521 to include the tenor E] will help, as will (in your second excerpt) taking the alto G into your left hand [4 holding on the tenor B, then using 1 on the alto G].

    Let me know what you think!
