solo organ score See perusal score excerpt
Edmonton composer Jeffrey McCune, is a composer, pianist, organist, teacher, as well as a visual artist (painter). His Etudes 1 & 2 for solo organ were created for himself to play at his Master’s recital. They are a set of two short contrasting works, the first Etude explores the Grand Organ in all its rafter-shaking glory. The second Etude is slower in style and explores layers of harmony that constantly change and subtly evolve over the course of the piece, ending in a soft, meditative coda.
