Genre: Modern
Description:
Jean Langlais was approached to write a music book containing pieces in that were relatively easy for use in both catholic and protestant church services. He agreed and wrote 15 works. He chose his student, Naji Hakim to also write 15 works.

Langlais' works are relatively easy and characteristic of his style. Someone should have told Hakim about the need to be playable...

The pieces were designed to lead into the next, allowing an organist to play for as long or as short as needed. They were written "in an impressionistic/twentieth century harmonic style" (Publisher's forward).

This is a lovely piece showcasing the soft foundations of the Great and the Swell. I have given this room to breathe as it is such a lovely piece and the acoustics add to it. The piece consists of a solo melody line interspersed with chords, leading into a middle section on the Swell which is different to the rest of the piece, before ending on the Great in a variation of the beginning.

Hope you enjoy!
