I recently was revisiting some of my first works when I discovered this little gem from the collection Five Short Pieces (2006).  The entirety of the work is dedicated to Denis Bedard and Rachel Alflatt, but they were written for Rachel in a particular situation.  The church she worked made a decision to have announcements happen before the prelude and that turned the prelude into an awkward affair.  She was looking for short pieces, about 2-3 minutes in length, and I did my best at the time to make that happen.  Of the five that I wrote, this is easily my favorite.
