    New Funeral march in C minor

    A short funeral march for a powerful organ.
    Music recorded with Mostoles virtual organ. No reverb added.

    Nice ... very nice, Jean-Paul

    This is one that I will need to learn and hopefully play in church. Thanks, so much for sharing of your wonderful talents in composing music for the organ.

    Liked the piece very much;however, not my style for a funeral service..too fast for my taste.. make a great postlude/recital/study composition.

    Good work, but my only question is that if you're going to neutralize the key signature just about every time, why put it in Eb to start with? But good work overall

    Hi Musiteach
    I wrote with this key signature because the piece is in C minor, not in the relative Eb. As you can notice there are a lot of modulations, sometimes close to C minor, sometimes very far. So I had to choose :
    - keep a single key signature for the whole piece, neutralizing it when needed
    - change the key signature very often.
    Which do you think is the best choice ?
    I think it is easier to remember along the piece that we are in C minor and meet many accidentals or have a new key signature every one or two bars but avoying accidentals ?
