In music, a “postlude” is the final prt of a piece of music. Often in a church service one will hear a postlude, often performed on an organ.
A concluding passage in a speech can often be referred to as a “postlude” as well.
I’ve had to sit through a few postludes in boring sermons, and I’m not talking about just one postlude. Once, there was this preacher and I tell you he did about six postludes. He was what you might call “wound tight” and had a lot to say.
Most postludes, however, are mostly pleasant to endure.
