This concert organ work was composed for Randall Harlow and premiered by him at the Stanford University Chapel in January of 2015. The music is part of a recording project of twenty-five recent compositions by composers in the UnitedStates and abroad that Dr. Harlow has curated. The gestures and sounds of Misericordia are influenced by rock and jazz organists and the sounds they developed that became popular mainstream music. It is also influenced by the classic works for the concert organ, barrowing from ideas of form and development of materials. The music brings a pleading voice that the organ expresses with great breadth and power unlike any other instrument.  -JAL
