LAMENT for organ is now available for purchase: Click here to get the sheet music! (in PDF format).

‘Lament’ is based on an improvisation I recorded on the pipe organ in Jørlunde church in 2009 (see the above video). The written adaption have been altered and refined, whilst keeping the structure and melodic lines – as well as the “feel” – of the original improvisation. I gave the premiere performance of the new sheet music version in Saint Paul’s church, Copenhagen, on June 12th. Since then I have made some further improvements of the score, and now the finished edition is ready.

UPDATE January 12, 2017: I have made a revised version of the beginning of the work, including an alternative (ossia) line which the organist can chose  to play should he or she prefer. I had for a long time been unable to decide between the two versions because they each work very well, but in different ways, and finally I decided not to decide but instead leave the decision the organist. I can also announce that I am currently working on adapting ‘Lament’ for violin and organ as well. Contact me should you be interested in that version which I hope to have ready within a month.

UPDATE April 11, 2017: Adaptions of Lament for violin and organ, viola and organ, and cello and organ are now available!

UPDATE April 2, 2021: Lament for organ sheet music is now available for purchase here.
