Advent Suite

As part of a series of articles on Charles Tournemire at, I set about to actually compose a suite modeled on L’orgue mystique. Tournemire did not write much music for Advent, so I decided to use familiar melodies from that season as themes for each movement. Three of the five movements are written now, and I played the one based upon Nun komm der Heiden Heiland as prelude today at the Cathedral of Mary Our Queen. I hope to have the other movements finished soon.

  1. Wonderful. Please advise when the suite is finished and prays for your ministry at this wonderful sacred space.
