Ein Auftragswerk für den Konzertorganisten Martin Setchell
”I prefer something grand, colorful, big, dramatic and striking.”
This is what Martin Setchell wrote to me.
He also wrote:
"I am delighted you will write a new organ solo piece for me.
I am a great friend and fellow-Englishman colleague of Christopher Herrick, and I have enjoyed performing your music for many years.
Your style suits my style, which is to play for the wider public, NOT just for other organists!"
”Definitely I would like to include this on my next CD which will celebrate the grand re-opening of the Christchurch Town Hall after the earthquakes.
I am the 'city organist' here, and I play the fine 1997 Rieger orgel, which has also been enhanced with 12 new ranks.
And here is the result of Martin Setchell's initiative named CELEBRATION."
