Voluntary in D Major No. 6, Op. 6 by John Stanley

Regular price $8.00

Last Tuesday it was supposed to be my regular practice at my church. My practice usually consists of pieces I'm currently working on, improvisation and sight-reading. 

Some things got in the way and I had to leave before I had time to sight-read anything that day.

Luckily, in the afternoon during Unda Maris organ studio rehearsal, my student Mindaugas Dulkys was playing Voluntary in D Major No. 6, Op. 6 by John Stanley (1712-1786) from England.

I wanted to show him how it's done and figured I could play it in a slow practice tempo. Not only I wanted to help him, I thought, but I also wanted to sight-read something that day.

Luckily, I had a video camera with me and recorded everything from the high angle so that my fingers were clearly visible as I usually do when I sight-read.

Of course, I had an idea to turn it into a practice score to help other students as well.

Thanks to Mindaugas Dulkys for his meticulous transcription of the fingering from my slow motion video into original edition from 1752.

Intermediate level. Manuals only. PDF score. 3 pages.

4 movements: Adagio-Andante-Adagio-Allegro Moderato

This score is free for Total Organist students.
