Prélude sur l'Introit de l'Épiphanie, Op 13

early 1960s; first published in Nobert Dufourcq's Orgue et Liturgie; based on the Introit for Mass of the Epiphany Ecce advenit dominator Dominus

The Prélude sur l’Introit de l’Épiphanie, Op 13, dates from the early 1960s. It is one of this composer’s less well-known works, and appears in a volume of compositions (Orgue et Liturgie) assembled and prefaced by the French musicologist Norbert Dufourcq. Each of the Préludes in the volume is based on a plainsong introit. Duruflé’s Prélude is on the introit for the Mass of the Epiphany ‘Ecce advenit dominator Dominus’. The composer has carefully set the Gregorian rhythmic patterns resulting in a series of bars of irregular length and flowing musical content.
