Prelude and Fugue in E flat major - (2010)    

for organ


 

The quiet, running sixteenths in the manuals accompany a simple 4' statement of octaves in the pedal, in a succession of four large phrases, much like a rhyme -- a, a', b, a''.

 

 

The fugue is stated with its own counterpoint, and the answer is in the expected, traditional dominant. A pedal statement elongates this, and then elongates further underneath restatements of the subject's head motive.
