  • Pieces for the end

    I'm looking for "attractive" tracks I could play right after the mass. Pathetic and not too difficult, pleasant both in performance which in perception (I'm really not sure it's correct written, but it's understandable, I hope).
    Maybe can anybody some recommend?
    I mean sth like Gordon Young's "Prelude in Classic Style" or Charpentier's "Te Deum".

    What is a "track"? Are you going to play CD's after mass?

      I meant "piece". Excuse me.

        Malstrom,

        I'm not sure what you meant by "pathetic," but perhaps going by your other suggestions, Paul Manz's God of Grace and God of Glory (Concordia Collection, Volume V, p.2) would be nice. You could also try Donald Hustad's Processional on "Lauda Anima" in the Collected Works of Donald Hustad. I also like the Introduction/Chorale from Boëllmann's Suite Gothique--even though it can be used for halloween.

        Are those pieces what you were looking for?

        Michael

          I have recently found out how great the small pieces are. A nice postlude (or even better, prelude) is David German's "Fanfare" great use if the En Chamade, if you have one. Simple solo Reed works too. Another one I used as a postlude was Buxtehude's Toccata (BuxWV 157)
          Allen MOS 1105 (1982)
          Allen ADC 5000 (1985) w/ MDS Expander II (drawer unit)
          Henry Reinich Pipe 2m/29ranks (1908)

            I would recommend having a look at pieces by French/Alsacian composers, e.g. Theophile Stern, Leon Boellmann, Adolphe Querm - the "sorties" (exit pieces) are often rather straightforward to play, but sound very nice.
            Not sure whether any of these can be found at imslp.org or the like. I have several collections of Alsacian organ music in print, because I like the style.

              Our church Organist likes to use Lang's "Tuba Tune" from time to time--it is one of my favorites, too. She also uses Manz's "God of Grace and God of Glory".

                Oh, thank You. This is it I'm looking for.
                Michael, yes, that's it.
                If anyone of You remind some good piece in "this" style (I have searched also Elgar's Imperial March already), put it here please.

                  Some Organists do reprises of the ending song in mass. But once again, I know a guy who plays Toccata and Fugue at the end of the Easter Vigil.

                    Purcell's "Trumpet Tune" and Clarke's "Trumpet Voluntary" (aka "Prince of Denmark's March") are also excellent as Postludes.

                      I have to submit the titles of my Prelude, Offertory and Postlude to be printed in the bulletin. I usually cringe whenever I want to use a "Prelude" without its companion "Fugue" as a Postlude. Or say if I want to use some worthy piece of classical (possibly), but maybe very secularly titled selection at the end of a Mass or Service. I can't remember when I first started committing the musical heresy of simply re-naming awkward titling to make it more Service Friendly, but now I do it all the time, allow this one example: "Postlude in C Major" by Jaromír Vejvoda, doesn't that look a lot better when printed in a church bulletin, than, "The Beer Barrel Polka"?

                      As for the o.p.'s purposes, several of the "Eight Little Preludes and Fugues" attributed to J.S. Bach might do the trick. C Major, F Major, G Major and Bb Major go down very well in my experience. D minor or E minor during Lent? The fugues to most of them are kind of weak, but the fugues to the F Major, D minor, and Bb Major if memory serves, have enough complexity to keep some of the more musically inclined congregation from leaving right away. FWIW.

                        Not that wrong, lots of people going to the watering hole after service anyway :D

                          May I add the Prelude & Fugue in G Minor from the Eight Little Preludes and Fugues? The first few measures are a bit down-tempo, but a lively tempo afterward helps make the rest of the Prelude nice.

                            I just have to say that I am in love with this thread title, however, at first I thought it was a request for funeral music.
