These pieces were composed in 1977 for piano but are much happier in the strings. The four movements are: Prelude(0'42"); Scherzo (0'32"); Duet (1'24") and Finale (0'50"). The work is dedicated to Zoe Johnstone in appreciation for her support of musical activities in Central Ohio. The difficulty level is about 7 on a scale of 1 (easy) to 10.

The Prelude for Horn and Organ was composed for a Hymn Fest on September 11, 2015 honoring the life of Walter R. Bouman, a personal friend of the composer. It is dedicated "To the memory of Rev. Dr. Walter R. Bouman (1929 - 2005)".
The prelude is in ABA form with the organ playing a solo in the middle section. The range of the horn part is between the transposed pitches of F-sharp 4 and E-natural 5. Rhythmically the horn part is very easy.
Music from the Ottawa River where rafts of lumber were floated to sawmills guided by men perched on the logs. The arrangement recalls the vibrant, outdoor life of the raftsmen in a setting for the complete woodwind choir. An earlier version was performed by the Toronto Symphony Orchestra at children’s concerts to demonstrate the woodwind instruments. For Pic, 2Fl, 2Ob, EH, 2Cl, BCl, 2Bn, CBn, 2ASx, TSx, BarSx.
The arranger pouts while stating, “This arrangement can be performed without the English horn and contrabassoon parts.”
