Herbert Howells: Partita for Organ

Books | Organ

Publisher: Novello
Composer: Herbert Howells
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album
The Partita, composed in 1971, is inscribed "For the Rt Hon. Edward Heath, M.P., Prime Minister". Its five movements enjoy the almost improvisatory freedom that is characteristic for Howells' writing, yet they are bound together by a kind of cyclic feeling engendered by a fairly consistent use of an original mode: it descends from C to C as follows: C, B, B flat, G, F sharp, E, E flat, C. The Partita exploits both the melodic and harmonic implications of the mode.
