Robert Elmore - 12 Interludes for Organ: #1

Elmore's Preface:

I suppose the ideal interlude in a church service occurs when an organist of taste and imagination improvises smoothly between two elements of the service. If these elements are musical compositions - such as Offertory Anthem to Doxology - the organist will perhaps use thematic material from both, thus making the musical bridge a unifying element.

Not every organist, unfortunately, is gifted enough to be able to do this easily, and even the imaginative ones have days in which they feel dry. It is for these that the present collection of Interludes is written.

They are not, strictly, pieces at all, for there is hardly any development in them. They are simply little musical moments, creating, I hope, a mood or an atmosphere which may be found useful. They are susceptible to great variety of interpretation, and the registration markings are merely suggestions. Even the tempo of each interlude could be varied a bit according to need, and therefore the timings given are only tentative.

Furthermore, each interlude is written in such a way that it can be shortened by judicious cutting or even by stopping at one or two appropriate points before the end. Also, similarly, they could easily be expanded. It is my hope that these little mood-pieces will prove useful.
