O Sacred Head, Now Wounded, Op. 71 (2020) for organ solo by Vidas Pinkevicius
This piece is dedicated to Maureen Woodhead. It is based on the famous Passion chorale and could be performed at Lent. Maureen was looking for some organ music suitable to be performed for Holy Week which would be based on this tune so I hope she and other people will find this chorale prelude useful.
Here I wanted to create a canon between the soprano and the bass. Middle parts imitate each other and are based on melodic fragments of chorale tune. To spice things up I present each chorale line with a different number of accidentals:
0 accidentals, 4 sharps, 4 flats and 0 accidentals.
PDF score. 2 pages. For organ solo. 2 minutes. Basic level.
When you create, miracles happen!
This piece is free for Total Organist students.
