The composer writes, “Rubrics (A Liturgical Suite for Organ) was a 1988 commission from the Organ Artists Series of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, for their tenth anniversary year celebration. The extra-musical impetus and subsequent titles for each movement of Rubrics are found in the instructions (rubrics) to the services for The Book of Common Prayer (September 1979 edition). Rubrics was given its World Premiere in Pittsburgh in April 1989 by organist, Mary Preston.” Read his complete notes at http://www.locklair.com/wp/compositions/organ/rubrics-a-liturgical-suite-for-organ.
