Sheet Music: Score
Imprimatur : toccata for grand organ / Natalie Williams.
by Natalie Williams (2014)
This piece was written to showcase the capabilities of a large organ, encompassing the wide range and scope of colours available within the instrument.
Using the Toccata genre, the work maintains a steady rhythmic pulse and melodic activity, while exploring the extremes of range, dynamics, timbre and texture as the piece develops.
An Imprimatur (Lat. Let it be printed) is a license authorising a publication. The term is interpreted here as a musical "endorsement" of the organ, as it begins a second life as an instrument of importance in South Australian cultural life.
