Spindrift Commissioning Guild Project for 2005

Meditations for Organ for Carson P. Cooman

About the project

In the fall of 2004 organist and composer Carson Cooman asked me to write a set of organ pieces that could be performed on recitals or other types of concerts, individually or as a set. I decided to write several meditations on natural phenomena. Each of these pieces will be 3 to 4 minutes in length and explore a single mood or idea. The title of the set is Meditations.

Carson Cooman is a renowned and prolific composer and performer with numerous performances happening all over the world. He is also an authority on contemporary composers and actively supports their work. You can find out more about Carson at http://www.carsoncooman.com.
