Help To Find A Piece Of Music

Hi,

 

Perhaps 'to find' is the wrong title for this, instead perhaps 'would you recommend' would be more appropriate.

 

On Easter Day, our Organ ( currently http://www.npor.org.uk/cgi-bin/Rsearch.cgi...ec_index=N06468 )"]http://www.npor.org.uk/cgi-bin/Rsearch.cgi...c_index=N06468)[/url] is being re-commissioned following a large amount of work and enlargement. I've been asked to find a piece of music that will 'quickly' show off some of the new stops etc on it. Do any of you have suggestions that fit this criteria?

 

- Ideally not more than 3:30 in Length

 

- Has the use of two solo stops, One will be a Tuba and the other a five rank cornet.

 

- Ideally builds to a big climax, where the new 32' pedal flues and 16' Swell reed could be used as part of the chorus.

 

Thanks in Advance,

Neither the link you supplied nor the index number will produce the stoplist.

How about William Mathias's Processional (in OUP's Modern Organ Music Bk.1)? After the introduction, the first solo could be done on the Cornet, switching to the Tuba afterwards. Would depend on how loud both these stops are, though - the Cornet would need to be sufficiently assertive and the Tuba not too oppressive.

 

You might alternatively be able to do something with Simon Preston's Alleluyas in the same volume, which requires a Tuba (and full organ) for the last couple of bars. I've not checked the score, but it might be possible to work in the Cornet somewhere (for the first right-hand solo maybe? If it's a quieter stop there's a suitable passage for it halfway through).

Copies of the Langlais piece are considered difficult to obtain in this country. It is a good piece and copies can be otained easily and quickly on-line from

http://www.crescendomusicpubs.com.au/

at 15 Australian dollars. This firm specialises in making available choral and organ music which is othewise unavailable and the catalogue is well worth perusing.

Its not organ music, but you could play a transcription of the Aida Grand March. Plenty of use for the solo trumpet of course, and in the Noel Rawsthorne arrangement I use, when the main theme enters it alternates between Solo and Great - perhaps the bits on the great could be played with the Cornet. The congregation will love it too - super piece of music.
