Description: Another example of a, Italian Catholic priest with an extensive catalogue of compositions, Zardini stands out for the quantity of his organ music of which the examples here run from short pieces for liturgical use to a Messiaen-influenced sonata (1971), a romantic little tone-poem of Respighian style (La pieve, also 1971) and a twelve-tone Introduzione e Allegro (from 1976 and the only time Fr. Zardini used that technique). His charmingly simple mass of 1961 is in the studied archaic style of Respighi, Casella and Malipiero. Pier Damiano Peretti (organ of Basilica di Monte Berico, Vicenza).
