Paul Halley at the organ at SPivey Hall, Atlanta and Cathedrale St-Sauveur, Aix-en-Provence
     

"Just listening to ''Anthem'' from Pianosong and noticed that it was recorded in 1986.  OK, Guess I’m getting old but it doesn't seem that long ago I bought it and heard it the first time and felt then what I feel now...a deep connection with the infinite.  Your music has blessed my life now for over 30 years and continues to.  Thanks! - Alex"

Piano with optional organ

Level: Moderate

 

A lyrical, piano ballad that builds with mood and atmosphere.  “The melodies he [Paul Halley] wrote for his solo piano/pipe organ LP, Pianosong, are so tuneful Barry Manilow would become an axe murderer just for the chance to say ‘I wrote them.’” - Cincinnati Enquirer

Prayer

PEL4018

Piano with optional organ

Level: Moderate
 

 

A haunting, rolling melody that builds in fervor and urgency, then calms in reflective passages. Aptly named. A beautiful prayer.

"During a stay in Israel, I was part of a private tour of Jerusalem by a friend from the Hebrew University. We arrived at a place (called Dominus Flevit) on the Mount of Olives where we were given the same view of Jerusalem that Jesus saw when he came to the city on that first Palm Sunday. He understood in his heart what that ancient city had been through in her first thousand years, and what lay ahead, and he wept. This music is a prayer for the peace of Jerusalem. It is a 3,000 year-old prayer." - Paul Halley

“Halley puts the colors, texture, and persuasive power of the pipe organ into highly pleasurable, easily listenable, emotionally unfettered contexts.” – Michael Barone, The American Organist Magazine   “Playing music that is at once vibrant and intricately contrapuntal, he deploys the instruments with a symphonic sense of coloration.” - Billboard Magazine

“This piece was taken from a commissioned work, in this case a song cycle for mezzo-soprano and baritone, called Evening Songs. Gerald Finley and Louise Winter asked me to write settings of seven poems by Max Ehrmann that would actually incoporate such musical devices as melody and harmony. Church music fanatics like myself will notice the use of the plain-song melody 'Conditor Alme Siderum', and organ buffs will detect the (hopefully) subtle use of the harp stop." - Paul Halley 1998 from Triptych CD composer notes

“Summer would not be summer without some serious gunk-holing on the South Shore of Nova Scotia in our catboat. One of our favorite islands is West Ironbound where we usually see seals in the water and sheep on the hills, but rarely any humans. When I think of that island I think of fog, and the sound of surf on the Ironbound Breakers and Shag Rock. In those conditions the shores of Ironbound seem not only mysterious but timeless. Lovers of hymnody and English folk-song will detect the melody ‘Kingsfold’ in a rare 5/4 treatment within the composition.” - Paul Halley
