Shofar Tune for Organ

Shofar Tune


For Solo Organ

92 measures



This is an unusual piece for an instrument with an unusual stop: the Shofar. Skinner Op. 638 was originally built for a synagogue in Mt. Vernon, NY and many years later reinstalled in a church in which I was working at the time. At the suggestion of the tonal finisher, I wrote a piece specifically for the Shofar stop, which it needed not only due to its unusual character, but also due to its limited 13-note compass. Playing the Shofar against the Clarinet, this piece makes an apposite twist on the standard trumpet tune. Although written for Shofar, it can, of course, be applied to any sufficient reed stop.

For a recording of this piece, simply email me at hocket [at] gmail [dot] com, and I’ll send it to you.

Here are some samples of the music:

Two Pieces for Solo Organ

Here are two organ solo pieces I finished this year:

Aria and Dance

For Solo Organ

135 measures

A soaring solo melody gives way to a multimeter dance in the middle section, before returning to the aria and ending with a tag.




Trumpet Tune in E-flat

For Solo Organ

161 measures

Somewhat like David Johnson’s music in its main theme, this piece, in rondo form, breaks into a difficult scherzo in the B section and a flute aria in the C section, giving it diverse means of expression.
