Marcussen organ at Witchita State University.

Commissioned for the 1982 AGO National Convention in Washington, DC, the work Views from the oldest House was premiered on July 1 1982 by John Obetz playing the 1969 Rieger organ at All Souls Unitarian Church. Michael Barone recorded that performance and first broadcast it in 1984 on his Pipedreams radio program (available online in 2021 via a 1986 program no. 8602).

“Sunrise on Sunset Hill“ describes morning on the hill where the oldest house has existed since its construction in 1686 as the home of Jethro Coffin. “Elms” references the trees that surround the house.
“The Nest in Old North Church” represents a bird’s nest in a church seen from the house.
“Spires” represents the church spire viewed in the distance.
“Rain Over the Quaker Graveyard” represents rain falling over a burial site next to the house.
The final movement, “Sunday Night,” particularly shows the impact of Rorem’s Parisian adventures with its opening chords resembling the organ work Dieu parmi nous by Mes­siaen. The final movement, composed in the passacaglia form with a jazzy bassline, can be interpreted as a romping barn dance.
Rorem chose the title in contrast to his orchestral work Sunday Morning composed in 1977.
