Festival Prelude for pipe organ

This was originally composed for a Christmas Eve Midnight Mass for solo piccolo trumpet in A and pipe organ, performed by trumpeter Don Owen, trumpet professor at the USF of Music at that time and now Emeritus Professor, and I. It was also published for soprano trumpet in Bb and piano (or organ) by Kendor Music. This version for solo pipe organ (no trumpet) is useful and is one of those pieces I tuck in my suitcase when I go traveling, just in case I’m near a pipe organ!
