Shulamit Ran’s only organ composition, commissioned by the American Guild of Organists in 2006. It was not played after its premiere until I began reviving the composition a few years ago, working with Ran on the final edition of the score for publication. This performance was part of a series of Fall 2014 concerts at Harvard, Indiana University, and University of Chicago highlighting this and other recent organ compositions by major American composers. Performed in November 2014 on the new Fisk organ at Harvard University.
