A ~6:20 minute piece for solo organ.
When I came to SMU, the first composition I wanted to tackle was a piece for organ. After seeing the Fisk Organ, opus 101, how can anyone not want to compose a piece for this magnificent instrument? After doing my research and meeting with a couple of different organists, I began to write. By the middle of the semester, I had a theme and variations sort of piece but left it incomplete as I began to work on other projects. Come time for my master’s thesis project I knew I wanted to include organ. I picked this piece back up, finished it, and met with another organist to go through and make changes where they needed to be. At long last, Siren’s Song was completed.
Premiered on April 8th, 2019 in Caruth Auditorium, SMU, Dallas, TX.
Organist: Joshua Boyd
