Arietta No. l
Arietta No. 1 is a sentimental piece for organ composed in "song-like," Aria style. The composition is influenced greatly by Italian art songs and opera arias as well as American music from the turn of the century. This piece uses the battery of the organ to simulate the texture of orchestra and voice. With a lyrical melody and the romance of another era, Arietta No. 1 is a dynamic and enjoyable concert work.
