Organ and Trumpet at Huddersfield Town Hall

Towards the end of his life Noel Rawsthorne was writing a partita based on the chorale Ein’ feste Burg dedicated to Gordon Stewart. Following his death his widow sent the movements which had been completed to Gordon Stewart. Sadly the final movement was incomplete, so Gordon commissioned the organist, pianist and composer Ben Comeau to write the proposed Fugue and Toccata.  During today’s programme Gordon Stewart interviews Ben Comeau who explains how he approached the task.
