Can you help complete the thematic index?

In honor of Rachel Laurin who has recently passed away, I would like to create a complete thematic index of her organ compositions. However, I will need your help to collect all the incipits (beginnings of pieces) to include them in this list!

Even if you don't know how to enter incipits in the correct format on this wiki, you can still help!

If you have any scores of Laurin's music, please send me a scan of the beginning of the piece, so that I may enter it in. You can email me at (Special:EmailUser/Fiskfan1999) for as many or few pieces that you have. A picture or scan is fine. DO NOT send me a scan of the entire piece! Only the first page, or the first few systems, or the first few measures is enough.

Please make sure that what piece (or movement) the section of music is from is clearly visible!

For a piece with multiple movements (like a suite, or prelude & fugue) it would be great to have incipits for each movement.

If you know how to enter incipits, feel free to create an account and help out. However, I ask that you adhere to the style guide.

Thank you!

P.S. Can you please check that the composition list does not have any errors? The list has been derived from her website, which has been archived in case it goes offline in the future.

One more thing to add...for some pieces, the movements are not listed (such as Suite Breve, op.6 no.1), can you tell me how many movements there are in these pieces and what they are called? This will be put in the incipits column along with the musical excerpts. --Fiskfan1999 (talk) 17:21, 19 August 2023 (EDT)
