from Light One Candle by Wayne L. Wold

Background[edit]

"Dr. Wold is associate professor of music and college organist at Hood College in Frederick, Md. 'Besançon' is the third section of his 'Light One Candle: An Advent Organ Collection,' published in 1996 by Augsburg Fortress. The other hymn tune settings are on 'Tif in Veldele' and 'Wachet auf.'[1]


"The trio on the hymn tune 'Besançon' was also recorded by Dr. Dykstra for the Service Playing CD, which accompanies the Study Guide for the AGO Service Playing Test, available for $20 from the AGO. This threepage trio is preceded by a one-page "Intonation on People, Look East," which should not be played for the test.....Be sure to play Fl in measure 5, top line, p. 26."[2]

Registration and Organs[edit]

The suggested registration is 8' and 2' stops in the right hand, 8', 4', and 154' in the left hand, with 8' Flute and 4' Principal in the Pedal.[3]

No registration changes are needed during the trio. The last page has frequent manual changes. "Since the music repeats a motif at the changes, it's only necessary to read every other measure. Keeping your eyes glued to the music might be risky in this passage."[4]
