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.
My upcoming recital calendar has several highlights. I've confirmed a return appearance on the Sunday Recital Series at St. Paul's Cathedral, London, England for 9 August 2015, some ten years since my last appearance on the series. Then, on Friday evening, 11 September 2015, I travel to the Basilica of Ss. Peter and Paul in Lewiston, Maine, for a recital on the church's magnificent 1938 Casavant organ. Details about its design can be found at http://saintspeterandpaul.us/casavant_organ.htm My calendar continues, then, on Friday, 8 April 2016, with a 730pm performance 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 I am also scheduled to play a 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 recently interviewed 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.

I am pleased to say that my very simple piece Variations on O Waly Waly for solo organ has been accepted for publication by GIA Publications, Inc., Chicago, IL, catalog G-8912. A recording of the piece can be found on the "recordings" tab of this webpage. My a cappella motet using the Traditional Latin Anima Christi text received its world premiere on Saturday, 26 April 2014, during the evening anticipated Mass at St. Peter's Basilica, Rome, Italy by the Ss. Peter and Paul Choral Scholars. The work has now received its North American premiere on Friday, 14 November 2014, in a 7pm concert by the same ensemble here at St. Augustine Cathedral, Kalamazoo, on our Sacred Music at the Cathedral concert series. A recording of the performance from this concert is available on the "recordings" tab of this page and a score sample can be found on the "scores" tab. Please feel free to contact me if you are interested in purchasing copies for your choir.
St. Augustine Cathedral's own Sacred Music at the Cathedral concert series has concluded its 2014-15 season. I am pleased to announce the upcoming season: 25 September 2015, 7pm, Philip Brisson, organ; 30 October 2015, 7pm, David Jonies, organ; 5 February 2015, 7pm, Thomas Fielding with KSO strings; 20 March 2015, 5pm, Early Music Michigan.
