Program Note

Originally conceived as a work for solo organ, Adoration was one of the last works Price wrote, but hearkens back to Price’s early work as an organist accompanying silent films. As critic and author Alex Ross writes, despite an impressive output of over 300 works, “[Price] is mentioned more often than she is heard,” a fact which is only now beginning to be remedied.
