Robert Saxton's Passacaglia On The Name John McCabe for Organ.
Commissioned by George Vass for a concert in celebration of the life and work of John McCabe CBE.
First performed in Faversham Church, Kent, on 28th June 2015 by Edward Kemp-Luck.
Duration: 6 mins ca.
A review in the June 2016 edition of Organist's Review calls this piece a "beautifully produced work" that features "the pleasing disorientation of false relations" and is "as inventive as it is impressive."
A similarly glowing review in the August-October edtion of The Organ magazine calls this piece "a very impressive short work indeed; brilliantly imagines and written for the instrument...one can only urge this music on all recital organists - it is a splendid piece, and would surely make a counterpart to an original McCabe organ work in the same programme - the Johannes-Partita, especially."
