Fine, I'll do it myself (Lamento for right hand and right foot)

in #classical-music3 years ago (edited)

A few days ago, I wrote that I have not been able to find music for organ, specifically written for organists with a disability, like missing a hand and or a foot (see here). So, instead of finding another manualiter piece that could be played with one hand and one foot, I decided to write something myself and create music specifically intended to be played with one hand and one foot.


I used material I wrote years ago for choir. I adapted it for organ and added a new section to create a simple but nice A-B-A' musical form. The harmonies used perfectly express the not so happy feelings I have for my present situation and I decided to go over the top and call this piece "Lamento".

One of the things I particularly like about this piece is the way it ends with a dissonant instead of a consonant, without it being too obvious.

The recording was done with the Hauptwerk software and the sampleset, made by Voxus, of the Stahlhuth/Jahn organ in the St. Martin’s church, Dudelange (

I love singing in church to the organ! Funnily enough at St Martin's but in Brighton UK!

Is the organ there just ad beautiful as the one in Dudelange?
