These were written to be played before or after a church service. They were all thus performed (by the composer) in the early to mid 1970s at various churches the UK. The second uses a key (here with a tonal centre of B) that I devised which has F sharp, A sharp, E flat and D flat in the key signature (but written here with all accidentals). Its pattern is H H W -3 H -3 H. The fifth is subtitled Prelude 72 because it was not only written in 1972 but consists of 72 (crotchet) beats. The last one was written for a small compass church harmonium.
