Composition

The piece I present today comes from a competition that the American Guild of Organists held.  The National Convention in Houston organized a competition of preludes and postludes based on modern tunes.  As an improviser, I often treat modern tunes in old fashions.  This work is simply an ornamented chorale prelude after the style of Bach.  There are some moments that I particularly like in the work, little moments of my interests interspersed in my impression of Bach.  But the best moment happens at the very end when the B-A-C-H(Bb) appears in the final cadence.  I do not regularly try to be clever, but this one I find enjoyable.
