As a performer, Robert McCormick has long specialized in organ improvisations, and these two pieces are transcriptions (by Bryan Dunnewald) of improvisations McCormick played at St. Mark's Episcopal Church in Philadelphia. Based on two classic early American hymns tunes, FOUNDATION and MORNING SONG, they make for rousing and fun preludes on the tunes. Two classics of the French organ literature served as models. The improvisation on FOUNDATION is modeled on Duruflé's "Choral varié sur le 'Veni Creator,' " and the improvisation on MORNING SONG is in homage to Marcel Dupré--modeled on that composer's "Variations sur un Noël."
