This set of Five Pieces for Organ was commissioned by and composed for organist Christopher Marks, specifically for the Holtkamp organ in Hendricks Chapel at Syracuse University. As my first work for organ, I was interested in exploring many possible sound worlds, thus, settled on the five-piece structure. Each piece is a world unto itself, often taking two or three simple musical ideas and combining them to make a more complex structure. While writing the piece, I worked very closely with Christopher Marks on the Holtkamp organ, finding registrations that worked very specifically for each piece. Although originally composed for a specific organ with specific registrations, each piece is flexible enough in registration to be performed on almost any organ. Five Pieces for Organ is dedicated to Christopher Marks with sincerest thanks and admiration.
