The Rumba (for organ, percussion and dancers) was written in 2015 for the brilliant organist Daryl Robinson, who is now Director of Organ Studies at the University of Houston. It employs traditional Cuban rhythms and percussion instruments, played by four percussionists. The piece is in three parts, in D Major (joyful)-D minor (introspective)-D Major (joyful) modes. Two Cuban-style dancers come out during the second part and add another dimension to the music. There are brief cameo appearances of a couple of famous French composers. It’s a fun piece that doesn’t take itself too seriously.

This set includes the master score plus parts, including organ and four percussionists.
