Composer Commentary

There are innumerable organ compositions of every variety and complexity on Christmas hymns, but not so many on Advent hymns. These preludes are not intended as recital pieces, rather as service music to draw both organist and listener toward Advent tunes. They enable the organist to widen the congregation’s acquaintance with Advent hymns.
