Advent is a magical and mysterious season stretching across several long weeks: It is a culture of waiting. Hoping in the dark and in obscurity. Humility, quiet and togetherness – without the commercial derailment of materialistic gift-giving – are characteristic features of the Advent season. Seldom are people as close to the old traditions as during this introverted period. This is expressed by Organ Symphony No. 11 in four movements: 1. Veni redemptor omium, 2. Licht – Mitten im kalten Winter, 3. Nun komm der Heiden Heiland, 4. Toccata sopra 'Rorate caeli desuper'. Composed for one organ with at least three manuals.
