A set of three modern-classical (i.e. neo-romantic) preludes and fugues for organ. The former 1st one is replaced in 2014 to match better in difficulty with the numbers 2 and 3 (the former 1st one was very difficult to play and stands now on itself as Op. 9). Registration indications (based upon the Hauptwerk sound set of the Mutin / Cavaillé-Coll organ of the Notre Dame in Metz) are intended as a help and are mainly notated as in late French romantic organ music (Widor, Vierne). In 2017 I have revised the pieces, checking every registration indication and every bar and I can assure that the pieces are entirely playable and that they will sound great if you follow my registration indications. The recording (digital performance in Sibelius 5 or 6 with Garritan Personal Orchestra, not Hauptwerk, of the former version of 2014) gives, besides the registration indications, a scant indication of the sound I want.
