Here's a new work for Pipe Organ (I would call it a new piece but in Scotland a piece is something you eat with jam). Hopefully I've embedded a link to it as a fame but if not heres a link to the url on Audiomack:
It's called Moladh Obar Neithich (In Praise of Nethy Bridge), composed for pipe organ in C Major (Score attached).
It's something I'ver been working on for a while (it was originally called Fanfare and March) and its looselly in 4 parts, namely (i) the fanfare - some big chords, (ii) a sort of interlude before the march, (iii) the march, and (iv) a finale - more chords and a nod back to previous sections.
For the mp3 mock up I've used the organ patches that come with Kontakt and Sampletank. While it gives a reasonable idea of what its about its not really how I envisage the organ sound I'm after. I've actually just purchased Vienna's Konzerthaus Organ and once I've gotten my head around how it works I'll use it for all my organ pieces.
Couple of things I'm not sure of in the score: I'm thinking the downward progression in the interlude is maybe a couple of bars too long before it starts on it's upward journey again, and secondly I'm thinking the last few bars before it ends are a bit abrupt and it probably needs a better cadence to end the piece.
