Description

For Organ - Prelude and Fugue based on the hymn tune Simple Gifts.  Listenable, enjoyable, accessible to both performer and audience, and very practical to organists who play in churches where organ music is appreciated.
"Great music, carefully constructed and modeled after Baroque principles yet reflecting a keen sense of freshness directed toward the chorale and Gregorian melodies."

This prelude is 2:00. The fugue is 4:08. Perfect for both a service prelude AND a postlude!
