Cantilena in C major - (2017)
A harmonic progression begins haltingly, and then lyrically expands in range and length. No solo voice is noted, for this chorale-like texture of hushed tone.
2 pages, circa 3' 00": an MP3 recording is performed by Edo Luynenburg, originally from Rotterdam, who has been a teacher, school principal and educational IT consultant before retiring to Spain.
In his musical life, he passed his piano and organ examinations, and attended the Haarlem summer academy. For twenty years he served as an organist in Oostvoorne, enjoying as he writes, "my beautiful Batz and a very musically inclined and helpful congregation." Retired, he continues to concertize for "kindred spirits" and contributes to an organ site featuring emulation software and samples as used by organists from around the world, www.contrebombarde.com .
The score is available as a free PDF download, though any major commercial performance or recording of the work is prohibited without prior arrangement with the composer. Click on the graphic below for this organ score.
