This short work for organ was originally intended for use during the distribution of Holy Communion. The two versions enable the organist to play either depending on the size of the congregation, and thus avoiding any unnecessary cuts in the performance. Of course, it will serve as a meditative prelude or reflective piece for general use.

Reviews

Best described as ‘quite innocuous’, the Adagio is given in two versions…It is nicely constructed and would happily fill a gap of a couple of minutes, or less if the shortened version is used.

Trevor Webb in RSCM Church Music Quarterly (December 2011)
