Ab Ortu Solis (2005) for organ is dedicated to Denis Bédard and Rachel Alflatt. The title is an extract in Latin from Psalm 113: “From the rising of the Sun unto the going down of the same the Lord’s name is to be praised.”

The basic melodic material is presented at the opening in a harmonization and then developed throughout the rest of the work.
