Op. 6 - Twenty Four

Chorale-Preludes

in All Major and Minor Keys

for Solo Piano

(2006-2011)

Program Notes: The Twenty Four Chorale-Preludes for keyboard instruments is intended for performance in the concert hall, church service and leisure. It was my intention to create a set of short keyboard preludes exploring the harmonic possibilities of a four-part texture in all major and minor keys each with an individual and contrapuntal character.
