Old North Musings (2021) reflects on more than 30 years of memories related to First Congregational Church, Nantucket, Massachusetts—services, concerts, events, compositions, organs, and individuals both gone and present. The final part of the piece is inspired by the experience of climbing the church’s famous tower. At the top, the island is seen resplendently on a glorious day.
