This is an arrangement of the Welsh tune "Ebenezer" (composed by Thomas John Williams (1869-1944)) written by Robin Dinda (b. 1959). Because the piece is so short I've repeated the first four bars and then added to the ending a nice solid bass note of completion. This composition has two different divisions of the beat: triplet and quadruplet, which gives it a lot of interest.

"Robin Dean Dinda was born in Wichita, Kansas, on July 30,1959, and grew up in Northern Virginia and Florida. He began playing the organ and composing at age eight, and, after some piano lessons from his grandmother, Emma Dinda, was mostly self-taught. Dinda played his first European recitals at age sixteen, performing organ concerts in Germany that included his own compositions. His first appearance at a national convention was for the 1986 Detroit Convention of The American Guild of Organists, when he replaced the scheduled artist with three days' notice. Since then he has performed across the United States, at many national and regional conventions, and in duo-concerts with his wife, Renea Waligora. He is particularly known for his performances of American organ music, and his programs invariably include examples of his own published compositions." (source:

This composition was found in the "First Organ Book" (4th Edition) edited by Wayne Leupold (
