Ad te levavi, Op. 41 for solo organ (2018)
This work is dedicated to Simon Johnson, the Organist and Assistant Director of Music of St Paul's Cathedral in London. I decided to dedicate this piece to him because of Ausra's and my upcoming concert at St Paul's.
This composition is based on the Ad te levavi Gregorian chant Introit for the 1st Sunday in Advent. It has 10 sections - each section for one chorale phrase. Basically, it's a series of multiple canons in augmentation, double augmentation and quadruple augmentation.
The registration is done for at least a two-manual organ in mind.
The fast sixteenth-note episode alternates with the slower quarter-note motion.
