The ten free style and hymn-based pieces that comprise Advent Awakenings speak to the exuberant anticipation of Christ's birth. "Wake, Awake, for Night Is Flying," a set of variations on WACHET AUF, was inspired by the resounding acoustics of St. Paul's Cathedral, London, where it was premiered. Even the quieter pieces evoke a spirit of contained joy. This volume should bring warmth of the season to both organist and listener.
