Organ Book: II. Pastoral Song (Jean Langlais)

Pastoral Song starts with a theme in a single voice. I play it with Trompette Harmonique. The same episode is repeated in chordal texture on the Flutes 8' and 4'. Then Trompette travels into the tenor range while flutes accompany it in the right hand. The voices switch several times. The piece ends with the chordal texture again. I like how the ending is constructed with the repeat of the fragment. Langlais uses his signature modal writing for which I love him very much!

I'm playing this piece using Friesach sample set by Piotr Grabowski of Hauptwerk VPO.
