was commissioned and premiered by the Cathedral organist of Nidaros domkirke, Trondheim: Magne H Draagen. The premier took place at St Paul’s Cathedral, London on September 15th 2019. The main theme is constructed from the letters in “Saint Paul” by extending the musical alphabet in a certain way. 

Commission and premiered by Dr. James D Hicks, USA in 2012.

The Nordic Fanfare was commissioned by Dr. James D Hicks for his ongoing project The Nordic Journey in 2015. The piece is based upon a Swedish folk tune and also includes a short fugue on parallel fifths and a brilliant pedal coda.

Composed and premiered in 1986 as a memoriam of Maurice Duruflé who died the same year.

Commissioned for the 40th anniversary of the organ at Gävle  Holy Trinity Church, Sweden in 2014. The theme for the variations is a local folk tune from Gävle. The piece is, as the headline suggest, composed in a French Romantic style with heavy influences from Swedish folk music.

Prélude, Choral Varié et Finale (digital vare)

Symphonia Aurora Borealis (The Nordic Light) is my largest scaled work for organ. A Symphony in 6 movements. With a playing time of about 40 minutes. The last movement, Divinity, can be performed with a soprano soloist or with organ only. Both versions are included in the edition. The work was commissioned by Dr James D Hicks who did the world premiere at Lund’s Cathedral in Sweden 2017 and the world premier recording at Nidaros cathedral in 2018.

The Organ Sonata is in four movements and was composed in 2006 for Organ Festival in Visby, Sweden but then later on revised and premiered by Peter Yardley-Jones in Glasgow in May 2008.

The Passacaglia was commissioned by Dr. James D Hicks for his ongoing project: The Nordic Journey and was premiered in Västerås Cathedral, Sweden in 2011. It features some interesting ideas as the passacaglia theme is first presented in the descant moving downwards for each repetition and ends in the pedal. The theme is based around a Swedish folk tune which enters at first in the final climax towards the end.

This work was composed for the inauguration of the new organ in Härnösands Cathedral in 2012 by the Italian organ builder Ruffatti. The premier was also broadcasted on Swedish National Radio. Cathedral organist Lars G Fredriksson, organ. The edition was nominated for a prize by the Association of Swedish Publishers in 2013.
