P R E V I E W  P R E M I E R E D  P I E C E S : 

P R O J E C T :  Book  of  Visions  (2015)  is a collection of 12 solo organ pieces currently being composed by Daniel Knaggs. The project surrounding the creation of these pieces involves:

  1. gathering organists to perform these new works
  2. securing funding for a professional recording of these new works
  3. securing funding to help complete this (time-consuming) new work (commissioning, co-commissioning)

P U R P O S E : This project is an effort to spread awareness of the organ’s greatness and of its relevance to the creation of new music. In this project Daniel wishes to make a substantial contribution to the continuation of a living and growing repertoire for this instrument.

P I E C E S : The 12 pieces in  Book  of  Visions  average about 4 minutes each (a total of nearly one hour of music). They are intended both for concertizing and for use in liturgical settings.
