Bryn Mawr Voluntary (2017)
for Organ (opt. pedal)
Erik Simmons, organ
Duration: 4.5 min.
Dedication: for Anthony and Arabella
Commission: Commissioned by Edward Landin
Bryn Mawr Voluntary (2017) was commissioned by organist Edward Landin. In the manner of many early English voluntaries, a slow section (with overture-like dotted rhythms) precedes a faster, energetic one. Throughout the music there is a blending of early-influenced modality with contemporary harmonies.
