Voluntary in E Major - Alto Solo

Here's a short, gentle piece, kind of in the style of a Romantic trio, although it's more of a quartet. The idea was to write a four-part piece with an alto solo, something which can be kind of tricky on the organ without playing the right hand on two keyboards (although I'm sure we'll get there...)

So instead of a chorale-like setting, there's this option, of having the left hand played off the keys and taking care of the tenor and soprano. Or at least what might generally be considered soprano; the solo voice does cross over it from time to time.

C-sharp Minor coincides with Good Friday, which should be interesting!
