For Organ Manuals with Optional Pedal

REVIEWS: "These amazing creations, designed for minimal registration, speak as eloquently to the art of organ music as any elaborate music anywhere. They epitomize my goals of service literature which transcends its original material and which transforms its auditors." —Journal of the Association of Anglican Musicians

"...subtle and masterful use of texture and imaginative harmony...advanced players could sight-read much of these works — however this does not lessen the charm and interest that abounds in them...These works are a welcome and highly useful addition to the repertoire." —The Sydney Organ Journal (Australia)

"...there is an imaginative and economical use of material in building up the variations. These short works provide for a wide variety of use in services, and would not be out of place in a recital programme as a gentle foil for larger pieces; furthermore, with the optional pedal they make good early teaching pieces, as well as useful studies in compositional techniques." —Choir & Organ (London)

"These pieces are highly suitable for liturgical use...Although quite easy to play, these partitas nevertheless offer a wealth of stylistic diversity, development and musical interest." —Sacred Music
