Embertides: Suite for Organ Sheet music
Embertides is a four-movement suite for organ based on the roughly equal divisions of the church year - Advent, Lent, Whitsun, and Michaelmas - which in turn hark back to earlier, secular traditions.
Throughout, there are short references and hints to plainsong and other hymns relevant to the seasons.
Drawing on a wide range of colours and textures, the composer creates an evocative and varied suite of pieces, perfectly suited for both recital and churchperformance; as such, the work will be welcomed by a wide range of players.
