Publications

In the Sweet By and By – Partita for Organ
150th Anniversary Organ Partita on the J. P. Webster’s theme “In the Sweet By and By” (1868). Composer: Matti Pesonen (2018). This is quite a big organ partita, not too difficult for any intermediate organist. The “Grande Finale” (Toccata) is technically more demanding, but there is also an easier “ossia” version. Suitable for almost any church organ – the bigger, the better. Perfect for any organ recital! The beautiful variation in G minor can as such be used at funerals. Find it at Sheetmusicplus!
