Welcome to the webpage of Tom Fielding! I am glad that you have chosen to find out more about my work as an organist and composer and it is a delight to be able to share my work with you! If you have any questions about any of the contents of these pages, please feel free to contact me using that section of this webpage. I am always happy to discuss the possibilities of recitals and commissions with you in addition to the availability of my works for performance in church and concert hall.

I am pleased to have had my Prelude on BREAD OF LIFE chosen as part of the upcoming "Bayou-Buchlein" project. This project is an anthology publication sponsored by the 2016 American Guild of Organists National Convention in Houston, TX, of short (under 4 minutes) "chorale" preludes on church hymns and songs composed since 1960. This anthology will be published by Selah Publishing and all of the selected compositions will receive a performance at the same 2016 AGO national convention. A recording of my selected piece can be found on recordings tab of this page. My thanks goes to my colleague and friend Jeff Hammack of Atlanta, GA, for commissioning this piece from me in 2012. I'm also happy to say that my very simple piece Variations on O Waly Waly for solo organ has been published by GIA Publications, Inc., Chicago, IL, catalog G-8912. A recording of the piece can be found on the "recordings" tab of this webpage.

I've completed my return appearance on the Sunday Recital Series at St. Paul's Cathedral, London, England this past 9 August 2015, some ten years since my last appearance on the series. My recital calendar continues on Friday, 5 February 2016, 7pm with a performance here at St. Augustine Cathedral on our Sacred Music at the Cathedral concert series with members of the KSO strings. This concert is made possible by a generous grant from the Michigan Council for the Arts and Cultural Affairs. It will feature Dr. Barry Ross as concert master and will include the world premiere of my newest piece Sinfonia Concertante for organ and strings. Then, on Friday evening, 8 April 2016, I'll perform a 7.30pm recital on the Steiner-Wreck organ at the Cathedral of the Assumption, Louisville, KY. Details about that instrument may be found at http://cathedraloftheassumption.org/music/organ. This will be a fun program for me in that I plan to play all early music, not my typical fare, including Buxtehude, Bach, Praetorius, Cabanilles, Titelouze and Froberger. I am also scheduled to play an eclectic recital on Tuesday, 10 May 2016, on the massive Schantz organ found in Milwaukee's Gesu Church: http://gesuparish.org/ministry/music/organ.php.

On 24 June 2015 I performed a noon-time recital on the Lauck Organ found at Pillar Church, Holland, MI. The City of Holland had its cameras rolling and the result was a lovely video of this program. Follow this link to https://vimeo.com/131902480 I was also interviewed last year by Kalamazoo Public Radio Station WMUK the week of my 13 February 2015 recital at St. Augustine. Cara Laurience, known locally as "Classical Cara," moderated the interview which included the broadcast of some archival concert recordings of mine.
