Description: All of the composer's organ music was composed after he left Italy and dates from 1943 to 1967. The two major works are the op. 159, which makes much use of impressionistic and colorful organ colors, and the Prayers, whose subtitle, "Six preludes on a theme of Bruno Senigaglia", conceals an interesting, variation-type sequence using a theme by his maternal grandfather.
