Here's a great three-movement work that can be performed as a suite or with the movements played independently. The Fanfare is brief, yet creates a brilliant opening with bright, fanfare-type rhythms ending with full chords. The Chaconne is a melodic movement primarily in 6/4 with a flowing melody accompanied by a moving left hand and a simple pedal part. The group ends with a full Sortie involving full chords and a rhythmic right hand. Triplet patterns lead to the full chords and full organ at the climatic conclusion.
