Contact the composer regarding perusal or performance materials.

A Bedfordshire Voluntary (2014) is modeled on the genre of the 18th century English baroque organ voluntary (as perfected by John Stanley and his contemporaries). The work is dedicated to Paul C. Edwards, a native of Bedfordshire, an editor of repertoire within this genre, and a composer of
contemporary works inspired by this period. In the traditional manner, a slow introductory section for the diapasons is followed by a lively allegro featuring a cornet (or trumpet) solo.
