Hello Richard, this is excellent - one of my favourite Wayland compositions! This moves forward with purpose. The registration works well as does the contrast between the two manuals. But above all, the writing flows well and makes for an enjoyable listen.
Well, thanks to both of you. I tried for a suitable contrast between manuals, which is a little difficult with the voices available. The music is a little offbeat, but not much. Much less dissonance than I normally use.
Well, David, I too am surprised at the tonality feature! When I was a performing pianist, I heeded tonality only for the melody statement. Thereafter, and in the bass, tonality was gone with the wind!
Ron, you may be correct about my organ works being my strongest point. Perhaps that is because I find it much easier than writing for other instruments. Possibly because I have a strong propensity for polyphony, or perhaps that's just the way it is?
