The 19th century composer/pianist/organist Camille Saint-Seans, who was known during his lifetime as
the "French Beethoven," is credited with saying: "The fugue is the ideal form for the postlude; as the voices enter, the people leave; when all the voices have entered, all the people have left."
With that astute observation in mind this big four-voice fugue in the key of d minor dedicated to the memory of Reverend Kevin Weaver has been entitled, simply, "Postlude."
This piece is written in quadruple counterpoint with three countersubjects maintained throughout and forms the fifth of "Six Pieces
for Organ," a collection of music composed in 2016-2017.
