This is a Toccata for organ, with a Musette as middle section. 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 piece, checking every registration indication and every bar and I can assure that the piece is entirely playable and that it will sound great if you follow my registration indications. The recording (digital performance in Sibelius 5 with Garritan Personal Orchestra, not Hauptwerk, of the former version of 2011) gives, besides the registration indications, a scant indication of the sound I want. Score moving videos on my YouTube-channel.
