Franklin D. Ashdown (b. 1942) — Prelude on “Savior of the Nations, Come” (2015) for organ

Franklin D. Ashdown (b. 1942) is a composer and retired physician, having pursued dual careers for three decades. He studied piano for 12 years, and at the age of 13 was recruited to play the organ for a local congregation. He later studied organ with Judson Maynard and James Drake, and was privately coached in composition by Fred Tulan in San Francisco and Leonard Raver of The Juilliard School. Ashdown’s organ and choral compositions have been widely published and performed in venues ranging from Grace Cathedral in San Francisco and the Mormon Tabernacle in Salt Lake City to Saint Paul’s Cathedral in London and the Cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris. His music has been featured on American Public Media’s “Pipedreams,” National Public Radio’s “All Things Considered,” and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir’s CBS broadcast, “Music and the Spoken Word.” Leonard Raver and Stephen Burns recorded his Requiem for the Challenger on the Classic Masters Label, and James Welch has included some of his solo organ music in his series of recordings for various labels.
