Some arrangements I have made of other people's music...
After noticing melodic and harmonic similarities between the Gavotte from J. S. Bach's Orchestral Suite No. 4 and Mendelssohn's carol, Hark! The Herald Angels Sing, I suspected Mendelssohn must have subconsciously (or consciously?) borrowed from Bach's Gavotte for this carol. In turn, I thought it would be interesting to create "Bach's own version" by setting the words of the carol to Bach's original music. View score.
This is my shorter version of William Walton's Crown Imperial Coronation March, suitable for use in church as a processional or postlude (especially on royal occasions!).
I composed a new ending, replacing the long passage of sustained chords of the original, which work fine in the original orchestration, but not so well in an organ transcription.
Completed in 2023 (just in time for the coronation of King Charles!).
This is the famous Adagio, formerly attributed (incorrectly) to the baroque composer Albinoni, but now known to have been written by Remo Giazotto in the 20th century (yes, it was all a hoax!). This arrangement has the string parts transcribed for second keyboard, allowing it to be performed as a duet with the solo organ part unaltered. For the second keyboard, a realistic sampled string sound would be ideal. View score.
