First Flight

Forces or Category: Solo organ

The Oxford Organ Library

This inventive work, composed in 2019, owes its title to that year's two great anniversaries connected to manned flight: the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing and the 500th anniversary of the death of Leonardo da Vinci. A range of highly effective textures and atmospheric harmonies takes us on a journey towards a gloriously affirmative D major ending.
