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 observation in mind this
big four-voice fugue in the key of d minor dedicated to the memory of Reverend Kevin Weaver has been simply entitled "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.
It has never been performed for the public and will receive its premiere in this soon-to-come video.
