This slide show is a computer generated recording of Fugue a la gigue in D Major Op. 6 from Ten Pieces for Organ Op. 1-9 by Steven Monrotus.

Dedicated to the memory of Bill Hulub, this fast-moving, brisk 4-voice dance fugue having two countersubjects and written in triple counterpoint for hands only may be performed on a one manual pipe organ with no pedals, a harmonium, electronic keyboard with pipe organ sampling, or piano.

This work answers the challenge of writing a "Jig" fugue in 4 independent voice lines for hands only upon a subject having a large upward leap in its melodic outline.

This recording was made on a Roland RD800 stage piano.  For a description of this instrument, please use this link:
