Misc. Notes This is a set of discursions or variations which purport to reflect a hike in the county of Derry. The starting point is a modification of the Londonderry Air

which returns at the end in another guise.

Misc. Notes This scan concerns the last page of the set. It is typical of the composer's way of doing things : moving forward by building on what comes before, rather than the theme itself, which rears its head now and then however, and applying the pen to a partial print-out along the way. It took five minutes to pen the approximate closing measures (June 29 2013, 10.30) but the phrasing stage is lengthy & painstaking, taking up more time than entering the bare notes.

Misc. Comments

This diptych is a continuation of the composer's Miniatures for the Organ, based on the four elements. It is in two parts, Fusion (1) and Expansion (2). The latter is a set of variations on The Londonderry Air, the former, a compact series of ten more or less related pieces. Great care has been taken to add indications that may help achieve a satisfactory interpretation of the score. As is usual with this composer, a bilingual attitude is adopted in the crutch-like text additions : Fusion leans on French, Expansion on English.
