Sonatina No. 5 (2018) for organ is dedicated to Brenda Portman.
The first movement, Fanfare, employs bright, polymodal harmonies. The second movement, Prayer, has a quiet, litany-like character. The third movement, Toccata, is joyous and festive in mood: alternating between a bright fanfare-like idea and buoyant, dancing music.
