Little Prelude and Fugue on D - (2013)    

for organ


 

Among the triadic harmonies built with D, the tonic minor, subdominant minor, supertonic minor seven, and raised sub-mediant minor form the vocabulary for the prelude, a motet-like work for four voices, one as the pedal D.

 

 

 

The fugue subject changes the order of the signature harmonies slightly, and the sixteenths in the same adagio seem to rush the fugue form forward.  The answer comes in the common practice dominant.
