Camille Saint-Saëns' Trois Préludes et Fugues, Op. 99, written for organ, includes this Prelude No. 2 – which is graceful and melodic, yet sophisticated and engaging. It features flowing, pastoral melodies featured in both the treble and bass, all supported by gentle triplet patterns which have the feel of calm tremolos. Arranged for David Harris and The Raleigh Ringers, this is a thoroughly ethereal and engaging setting which moderately-accomplished groups will certainly choose to include in their concert repertoire.
