A general purpose organ voluntary, also suitable for playing before the bride’s entrance or during the signing of the register
- Op.28 No.6
- 3 minutes
This voluntary in A major was written for the occasion of the wedding of Joanna and Bertie, 24 October 2009.
It has two main ideas: a lilting subject in 12/8 time based on running quavers, and a 10/8 subject based on semiquaver rising thirds.
The themes are varied each time they are presented, with a central reprise in the remote key of A flat major, before returning to the tonic key for a gentle concluding coda.
