The music was composed in November 1996 and was intended for St Andrew’s Anglican Church in Gothenburg, where I served as organist from 1982 to 2014. However, it never came into use and was consequently shelved and forgotten. Some 20 years later, I rediscoverd the score by chance among some debris and rubbish in our attic. I decided to publish the original handwritten score on Facebook. There was a very positive response from a group of organists, among them Stephen Craig, one of my successors at St Andrew’s. He wanted to present the music to our congregation, so I undertook the task of revising the organ accompaniment and composed two new pieces - the Sursum Corda (November 28th, 2017) and the Gospel Acclamation and Verse (February 21st, 2018).
