San Francesco – Preludio per il Cantico del Sol, S498d
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
San Francesco, although a straightforward enough piece, presents a conundrum as yet unsolved: it was composed for organ, with an alternative version for piano supplied alongside, to go with the organ and piano versions of Cantico del Sol. But the organ version of the latter piece has proved elusive, and yet the piano version has been known for some time. San Francesco presents some of the thematic material of the Cantico in rather a processional garb.
