Review from The American Organist, December, 1993

Fanfare and Advent Toccata, Laurendale PO-1000

Meditation on Silent Night, Laurendale PO-1002

Veni Emmanuel, Laurendale PO-1001

The first is based on Nun komm, der Heiden Heiland and would make a suitable postlude during Advent. The second on Stille Nacht has the tune in the pedal on 4 or 2 against constantly moving eighth notes in the manuals. The third makes as ideal prelude during Advent, beginning softly and building to a climax that is stunning and then reducing to celestes. All three contain effective writing. Moderately difficult.
