It’s my pleasure to introduce you to a selection of pieces from my portfolio for organ solo which includes choral preludes, the complex fantasies, a variety of solo works, and the triptychs. My compositional approach has been described in this way:
“A musical architecture where musical shapes are juxtaposed to effect shifting perspectives and dialog between repeated subject matter…”
“A conversation of sorts between disparities and symmetries…”
“A form of musical cubism, perhaps…”
My catalog of music based on chorale tunes is clearly influenced by my Lutheran upbringing. I sang the chorales and hymns when I was growing up, and they have long since formed me in my thinking about music for the church.

fantasies for organ
The ten fantasies for organ were composed between 2005 to 2020 and form a significant part of my catalog. These are abstract works about architectural design, symmetry, and contradiction.
Go deeper: Fantasies for Organ
My catalog includes numerous individual works for organ solo. Many are intended for concert settings, and a good portion have non-liturgical themes. This music often finds its origins in literature, painting and architecture.
Go deeper: Solo Works
These three movement works could be called organ sonatas, but they not so rigidly structured. Their assembled collective opens a conversation about their synchronicity, or their contradictions.
