An organist friend of mine by the name of Phil, in the US, has been kind enough to send me his compositions based on hymn tunes throughout the year. I think he was even on a streak of a composition a week for about 3 months! His pieces are very accessible and useful in services—as that's exactly why he composed them! He has amassed a wide variety of preludes, offertories, interludes and postludes appropriate to the theme presented each Sunday.
Not too long ago, Phil sent me a message asking me if I'd like to offer a suggestion for a composition. I gladly took up his offer and asked him for a postlude on Hark! The Herald Angels Sing! I also said it would be great if it could be in the style of a French Toccata :) Earlier this week, Phil emailed me this lovely present—the Postlude on Hark! The Herald Angels Sing! Whilst not a French Toccata, it's a fabulous and catchy arrangement, I hope you will agree. I'm amazed at the creativity possible in just over two minutes of musical excitement. Thanks Phil!
