    Organ music, not for the office

    Hello

    I have been asked for this fun (or strange) music by a French organist, to be performed on the organ of LA ROCHE SUR FORON.
    I called it "Fairy Day" and I would like to share it with you.

    Delightful ... playful ...

    Wonder what it would sound like if at the end it returned to be beginning theme and ended in a special coda in the original key.

    I can see a great use for this as an organ concert encore, or even an Offertoire at church - my congregation would absolutely eat this music up and enjoy it.

    Well, what can I say - they like anything I play ... strange congregation, I guess.

    And you like anything I compose ..... strange organist, I guess !!!!

    Would you really play it at church, if I return to the first thema and add a coda ?

    J-Paul,

    Yes, I do like everything you compose ... the strangeness part comes from my affinity of music by French composers, in particular, Franck, Vierne, and Dupré ... and your compositions are no exception.

    I would definitely play the piece at church - intact as it is, or with an added coda. I only put the thought out for consideration as it "felt" like it wanted to flow back to the original theme, as the ending was a little elusive.

    I listened to it last night and really enjoyed it! I think it is a very happy sounding piece.
    It was very interesting to me to see the sheet music too, thank you.

    I quite agree, Drummer.
    It's always neat to read the score as it's being played - gives us a better feel for the piece, and to hear it as the composer intended is a real plus.

    Thanks, J-Paul ... looking forward to seeing the revision.

    Hi J-Paul,

    Nice coda - really compliments the piece splendidly ... glad you liked it too.
    Now to learn it so I can play it in church. I'm doing an organ dedicatory concert in the Fall - perhaps, with your permission, I would like to include it in the program.

    Hi

    You can hear now the version 7 of this music, using stops similar to those of the church St Jean-Baptiste of la Roche sur Foron (France) including small bells.

    I have been asked also for more music for this organ, so you can see an other topic "adagio of the suite FRANZETTI3
