On four historic instruments in this New York university town, we explore a collection of cordial and creative contemporary compositions.
DON FREUDENBURG: Preludes on So nimm denn meine Hände –Will Headlee(1892 Roosevelt/1980 Schantz/Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception)
JANET M. CORRELL: Homage to Persichetti –David Enos (1855 Johnson/Westminster Presbyterian, Syracuse, NY)

Filler –BRUCE LAZARUS: Meditation (see above)
Performers Will Headlee, David Enos and Katharine Pardee were recorded in Syracuse, New York, by Michael Barone in May 1995 in an unpublished recording from the Pipedreams Archive. Scores for all of this music, except for the works by Johnson, are available in The Syracuse Collection, published by Wayne Leupold Editions.
