Recently performed at Harvard Memorial Church by Carson Cooman (insert this Youtube link into your browser),  These delightful meditations for organ on the traditional Irish tune 'Slane' can be played individually or as a set. The second variation artfully combines two familiar Irish melodies ('Slane' and 'O Danny Boy'). The third variation has an optional pedal part which can be played by the left hand. These meditations are ideal when a short piece of music is required within a service, they also make excellent teaching material for the younger organist. The performance duration is four minutes. An extended set of five variations by the same composer was commissioned in 2009 by Professor Marilyn Mason and is widely available, (volume 7 of the Marilyn Mason Organ Library).

    This is a charming little piece, easy to play, based on "Slane" and the Danny Boy tune. Three meditations, but really just one brief piece.
