This slide show is a recording of Toccata
& Fugue in F Major Op. 19 from Six Pieces for Organ Op. 18-23 by Steven Monrotus.
Composed in 2017,
this work is a fiery French Romantic Toccata in crescendo style built upon two themes which are paired with a related 4-voice Fugue having two countersubjects treated in triple counterpoint.
The Toccata has two themes, the first of which is the hymn-like tune upon which the Christian hymn of praise Darkness Hath No Chains Op. 32 was written. This tune is derived from the Fugue's subject, 1st countersubject, and their inversions. The hymn may be previewed using this link:
