Ten Voluntaries for Solo Organ, Vol. I
Vol. I - Voluntaries 1-5
George Berg (c. 1730s-1770s) was an English composer and organist of German origin. These voluntaries are written in the English Baroque style with trumpet tunes, compelling adagios, French overtures, echoes and interesting three-voice fugues. The melodies vary from step wise, to arpeggiated melodies, to trumpet tunes and derive from the harmonies. Sequences elongate the melodies, and other ornaments are trills, slides, turns and appoggiaturas.
