It's been a while since this page has been updated, and I'll try to post updates more often. I've recently put together a home practice instrument using the Hauptwerk software, making it easier to produce good-quality recordings. These recordings are made using samples from the Father Willis instrument in Salisbury Cathedral (specification). Scroll down for older recordings made at University United Methodist Church.

Archived recordings

The section below has not been updated since May 2016.

This page has recordings of some of the organ music I've played, for friends and family. These are not professional recordings, and I'm still trying to find the right locations for microphone placement, the proper recording levels, and so forth. I'm also not a professional organist, and you will find plenty of mistakes in my playing as well -- but I hope you enjoy them nevertheless.

Information on the instrument I play can be found here. My teacher is Dr. David Polley, organ instructor at Southwestern University, music director at Grace Episcopal Church in Georgetown, TX, and former organist at University United Methodist Church in Austin, TX.
