Fiestas de Santa Fe is a collection of music inspired by the culture and geography of Santa Fe, New Mexico.

The four pieces are written for a modest instrument and with the exception of a few passages requiring the use of a pull down pedal registration, the sores are playable on the manuals only. With a few adjustments, the music can also be played on a Harpsichord or Pianoforte. The set may be played complete or individually as the performer elects.

Santos, in three movements, features musical depictions of New Mexico saints which are often represented by local folk artists in either retablos (wooden panels) or bultos (carved figures). These images are not considered icons, but merely symbols of the invisible power or personages to whom an individual's prayers are addressed. San Acacio is the patron of soldiers and headaches. San Cayetano patiently ministered to the sick and the poor. San Geronimo was a flagellant who frequently heard the voice (or call) of God.

Tierra Roja is inspired by the distinct natural colors and qualities of light found in the American Southwest. Sunrises and sunsets are often spectacularly colorful events which leave an indelible impression on the mind. This score includes programmatic music to suggest a timeless of the desert, the crystalline blue skies, and even the scampering of a gecko in
the noonday sun.

Farolitos en la Nieve is an evocative setting of an old Christmas hymn which offers an image of the city on Christmas Eve as it is bedecked in softly lit candles on the sidewalks in the falling snow.

La Posadas focuses on an annual Advent-tide event in Santa Fe which commemorates the journey of the Holy Family from Nazareth to Bethlehem. A procession is led (often by two children) through the town to find a house where Mary and Joseph might be welcome. A setting of Adoro te Devote is found in the midst of this piece evoking the reverence of the community around the manger bearing the Christ Child.
