Meditation on "Oh, taste and see" - (2024)   

for organ

for Clara Godshall


After a season of organ recitals sponsored jointly by Bishop Gadsden on James Island and by the Charleston chapter of the American Guild of Organists, the presenter of this small series is celebrated hereby for her musical career as for her promotion of these recitals.. Her suggestions spun out the first quasi-imitative gestures and thereby the general form as well. The title references that quote from Psalm 34:8 - "Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good." Indeed, there is good in this world.
