This organ triptych was composed in conjunction with Volumes 2 & 3 of Fantasias and Trios and initially designed to be a part of the latter collection, but it got finished before its companion pieces, as if it had an "independent" character. This applies to the untitled first piece, but due to the particular appeal of building a ternary structure, the next two numbers were added as follow-ons. The titles were added as afterthoughts, in character with the layout of the music.
1/10/17 : A habitual revision is in the works which will be posted shortly, which includes a change in the titles : Cycle => Sommeil d'Amour, Responses => Undercurrents, Suspension => Narcissi. The title changes are not purely lackadaisical, the n°1 is based on a short poem by the composer who felt it was more in the spirit of the music, and the rest followed suit in the same way. The page format is also being changed for binding purposes.
