C.102 - "Ambience No.2"

Composed: 17th October 2016

     Akin to “C.65 – Ambience No.1”, this is another organ ambience written purely to serve a purpose – something I can play on repeat and conclude at any time preceding a church service, to provide “ambience”. This one I first played for a Christian Science service in Woking on 30th October 2016, for which it was originally written (as I needed two ‘improvisatory’ pieces to play during the service; this time, during the collection). Here was the premiere from the 30th - note the bell ringing in the background which signals the collection is finished, and the organist can conclude their improvisation.
