Christmas Recital 2020

Welcome to my 2020 Christmas Recital! There is such a breadth of wonderful music that has been written over the ages for the Advent and Christmas season. I didn't want to allow cancelled and modified events due to COVID-19 to prevent me from sharing the music that I so enjoy playing at this time of the year. I am delighted that you can join me for a 25-minute program of some of my favorite Christmas organ works — all based on familiar carols.

The recital was recorded December 12th–15th, 2020, at Edenton Street United Methodist Church in Raleigh, N.C.
