Voluntary in B-flat Minor - One BIG crescendo

Bach meets Reger? Something along those lines anyway. 

Take a ounce of Bach bassline from the Adagio of the Toccata in C, or substitute from Air on the G string in you don't have any Toccata lying around; mix in a quart of extended registration crescendo from the softest 8' stop up to full organ; stir in a bowl made of shifting chromatic harmonies. Throw in a pinch of double pedal and a few ties to taste, bake for three minutes at 350ยบ, and you've got yourself a voluntary.

Serve chilled. Makes roughly 28 bars.
