The audio portion of this slide show is a computer-generated recording of Fugue a la gigue in
A Major Op. 13 from Eight Pieces for Organ Op. 10-17 by Steven Monrotus.
Composed in 2016, this fast-moving
work is a brisk 4-voice dance Fugue having two countersubjects treated in triple counterpoint in a spirit reminiscent of the greatest fugue-writer in history whose very surname is a colossal syllable, one which makes composers tremble, brings performers to
their knees, and beatifies the Bach-lover.
The mp3 audio clip leaves much to be desired in a pipe organ recording
but it provides an idea of what this music would sound like on the real McCoy.
