Notes on Shenandoah by Nicholas White:

"This duet was based on the well-known American folk tune at the request of Ray and Beth Chenault. I conceived the work as an opportunity to explore the full-sounding, lush tonalities of the organ which are available to an even greater extent when played by two people. Phythmic variety and playfulness prevade the piece thourghout, after its straightforward opening, and combine with jazz-inspired chords and figurations. As the composition of the piece was in progress, serveral tributes to American composers of this century appeared on the page, such as Gershwin, Bernstein and Mancini, and melodic frgments from the songs "Somewhere," "Strangers in the Night" and especially "moon River" are in evidence.

“No one can contest the spectacular facility, musicianship, and ensemble that these two offer in every

musical style represented.  Amazing artistry and technique, creative and diverse programming,

and an accurate sense of what the public -- from casual listeners to highly trained church

musicians -- will enjoy and appreciate."

- The Journal of the Association of Anglican Musicians
