DePaul Preludes

In honor of the School of Music's Centennial Celebration during the 2012-2013 school year, Dean Donald Casey commissioned DePaul faculty composers and invited members of the DePaul community alumni, other faculty, and staff to compose a prelude for piano.  The DePaul Preludes are works for solo piano of between one and three minutes in length that begin and conclude with a sounding "D". Below are the composers who submitted a prelude for this project and their preludes (PDF). Those marked with an asterisk are the commissioned DePaul faculty.
