Phoenix Processional

The original three minute Phoenix Fanfare was commissioned in 1979 by Union Theological Seminary in New York City for the February 1980 reopening and dedication of Union’s renovated James Memorial Chapel.

Windows of Comfort
(Organbooks I and II) is a 1996 work for solo organ. The complete work has been recorded by Marie Rubis Bauer for Recital Recordings and selections have been recorded by Douglas Cleveland for the Gothic label.
