Homer C Nearing (1895-1986), born in Springfield, Missouri, graduated from the Kansas City Conservatory of
music. He was, during his career, a music professor and church musician from 1914 until 1920 in Texas. While there,
he was inspired to compose his impressionistic organ suites by the history and terrain of the Southwestern United States.
He wrote organ and choral music with an attempt at keeping the technical demands moderate enough so that less proficient performers
could produce a musically satisfying result. 1. Sand Drifts, 2. The Cactus,
3. Mirage, 4. Cruceta, 5. The Adobe Mission.
These evocative atmospheric musical pictures will appeal to the romantic sensibilities of listeners. They offer the organist
an opportunity to play a suite of program music without weeks of work. Easy to moderately easy.
