THE SOLID ROCK – organ solo


Store:  Cavatina Music
0 out of 5


The Solid Rock utilses fragments of the well-known hymn tune to create a powerful, original modern work for organ solo. Beginning quietly, introspectively, on manuals alone, at first employing a 5-note, then a 4-note motive, hinting at the first four measures of the hymn tune, slowing building to the finale which begins fortissimo, with grandeur, now echoing the first four measures of the hymn tune’s refrain. Here the pedal finally enters, encompassing merely three different pitches (A, D and E). The piece ends with a strong flourish on an E6(add 9) chord, adding a 32′ reed in the pedal. An impressive, but moderately easy work for church and concert.
