Michael Starke has written his Intonation and Canzona in d minor in the tradition of the great Renaissance and Baroque composers.
Often an "intonation" was a keyboard piece used to set the pitch and key for an ensuing choral work, a sort of "upscale" pitch pipe!
The canzona form, a part-song in madrigal style, developed into what is known as an organ canzona, a fugal form in three or more sections.
Mr. Starke expertly takes up these definitions in his work.
Intonation and Canzona in d minor is an organ work of medium difficulty.
It would make a very nice prelude for Ordinary Time and might be quite effective leading into an Opening Hymn in D Major, e.g. "Jesus Shall Reign" (Duke Street) or "Ye Watchers and Ye Holy Ones" (Lasst uns erfreuen).
