Album Notes
Suite Breve (2010): "Variations" is dedicated to Adrian and Pam Self. A presentation of the lyrical (original) theme is followed by five variations. A return of the theme and a brief coda conclude the movement. "Pastorale" is dedicated to Christopher Uehlein, OSB in celebration of the 50th anniversary of his ordination to the priesthood. "Sortie" is dedicated to Max Tenney and is festive and ebullient. The suite was premiered by Adrian Self at Cartmel Priory, Cumbria, England on a St. Cecilia's Day recital (November 22, 2010).

Played on Skinner Organ Company, Op. 793 (1930; re-built 2010 by Foley-Baker, Inc.)

Fantasia on “Fair Harvard” (2012) for organ was composed for the Baccalaureate and Senior Chapel services at The Memorial Church, Harvard University, in celebration of the C. B. Fisk, op. 139 (2012) organ—the Charles B. Fisk and Peter J. Gomes Memorial Organ. All the musical material for the work is derived (almost obsessively) from the university’s alma mater, Fair Harvard (lyrics by Samuel Gilman; tune from a traditional Irish air). The tune is heard both straightforwardly and in transformation, and all the accompanying motives are derived from phrases of the melody. It is dedicated to Cynthia Wight Rossano.
