Dryburgh Abbey is the second of three studies for organ inspired by a visit to the Scottish Borders in August 2003.  Each movement reflects the character of one of the great ruined Scottish Abbeys as well as focusing on a particular aspect of organ technique.  They are designed for the developing player, each presenting a particular but surmountable challenge of technique. Situated on the banks of the Tweed, Dryburgh is a peaceful and beautiful spot, the burial place of Sir Walter Scott.  The music is lyrical and exploits a variety of techniques for the accompaniment of a cantabile melody.
