Of course I couldn’t stop my search… Found a beautiful MP3 version at proorgano.com

Such a hauntingly beautiful piece; beautifully rendered here.

Thanks again,

Fell completely in love with Jonathan Rudy’s performance of Pamela Decker’s Faneuil Hall. So beautiful that it stirred me from a sort of half-sleep and sent me scurrying to this site to learn more about the beautiful music I’d heard.

Would love to know where I can find a recording of this piece so that I can listen to it … maybe forever.

Thanks for any information you can offer about where I might find it.

Thank you for presenting it on your program,
