Close the window
This piece whose duration is 10 min 30 is a commission of the organist Marie-Ange Leurent who is appointed of the organ of Notre Dame de Lorette un Paris. It is a concert piece which can also be played during the liturgy. It has been written for the Pentecost Day. It is composed of three parts which are linked, and lean on the notes of the Gregorian Hymn.
Three meditations punctuate the piece. They represent the man in front of the Mystery of the Holy Trinity. The climate is soft and poetic. A triple canon (bar 183 to 194) symbolises the Holy Trinity of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. This piece ends in a full joy.
Note to the interpreter:
The registration indicated in the score are given as an example. This piece can be adapted to a baroque organ as well as romantic or a modern one.
The indications of games give an idea of the colour and the strength. It is for example, possible to replace Bourdon 8 of the great organ by one of the swell with closed box.
