Deux Evocations for Organ Solo
"Influences from 20th-century French organist-composers--Louis Vierne, Marcel Dupré, Jean Langlais and Maurice Duruflé as well as Jehan Alain--suffuse these newest pieces, although blended into an expression uniquely Baker's own.
Beautifully crafted, both make much of plainsong melodies that would have been part of the weekly experiences of those bygone organists. The Première Évocation uses two hymn tunes associated with the Virgin Mary, first in a pedal solo beneath drifting chords, then on a Cromorne stop, then on rich foundations. The Deuxième Évocation, with three Easter hymns woven into its textures, opens with chugging, chuffing foundations, evolving into a florid toccata."
