The Visitation   (by Michael Spencer & Jake Randell; 2018)

for pipe organ, amplified organ pipe installation and group of players

Performance by Robert Webb (organ) and University of Leeds students (installation)

​The specially commissioned piece celebrates the restoration of the Lewis organ in St Marie's Cathedral and, while the title evokes Mary's visit to Elisabeth, it also reflects the 'visiting' of Mic's and Jake's music on each other. The latter is a deconstructed re-thinking of the organ, and the former uses the bass pitches of Jake's music to develop a growing harmonic cocoon that eventually recedes at the end of the piece.
