A selection of compositions for organ, inspired by the melodies of the Geneva Psalter.
Een selectie van mijn composities voor orgel, geïnspireerd door de melodieën van het Geneefse Psalter.
Psalm 2 (2014)
A more grim setting, slowly evolving into a more comforting atmosphere.
Psalm 3 (2017)
First attempts at using more ambiguous harmonies.
Psalm 6 (2018)
Meditative music, consisting of different layers, most of which play the psalm melody at different pitches, tempos and directions (reverse).
Psalm 8 (2017)
Stately music for the first psalm in a wedding service.
Psalm 17 (2016)
Meditative piece inspired by Cesar Franck’s piece ‘Petit Offertoire’.
Psalm 33 (2015)
Playful prelude, inspired by ‘Golden Brown’ by The Stranglers.
Psalm 80 (2016)
Procession, depicting the slow coming of Christ in Advent.
Psalm 84 (2015)
Playful short chaconne.
Psalm 85 (2015)
Meditative prelude for Psalm 85, fitting the Advent period.
Psalm 90 (2015)
Solemn prelude, based on the largo by Vivaldi, transcribed by Bach (BWV 596).
Psalm 96 (2016)
In this piece I wanted to express the joy of singing a ‘new song’ – because that’s what this Psalm is about: ‘Sing unto the LORD a new song!’
Psalm 98 / 118 (2015)
Exactly as with psalm 96 (see above), I wanted to express the joy of singing a new song.
Psalm 131 (2016)
Fitting the humble text.
Psalm 145 (2014)
Not perfectly sung, but still rather effective as lighthearted interplay between choir, organ and congregation.
Psalm 145 (2017)
Dance-like prelude and two settings of Psalm 145.
Psalm 149 (2016)
The tempo of this piece is unusually high for a Genevan psalm, but fits the joyful dancing text.
