Prelude and Fugue in D minor - (2011)    

for organ


 

The prelude is an inexact rondo form, a portion of the opening gambit repeated without the cadence on the tonic or beginning midway through. The episodes are varied and encourage interesting registrations to vary with the overall theme.

 

 

The fugue subject is immediately accompanied, and the answer is stated in the subdominant, while cadencing on the dominant to return to the tonic minor. The florid subject is repeated in the pedal several times, alternating with subdominant restatements in the manuals.
