Schlick’s compositions for the organ reveal a high level of artistry, including trio textures, imitation between voices, and virtuosic pedal passages. 




Selected pieces are found in Kimberly’s anthology:

Vol. 6 of the series Historical Organ Techniques and Repertoire. Colfax, North Carolina: Wayne Leupold Publishing, 2004


Kimberly’s performance of Schlick’s massive 10-part setting of Ascendo ad patrem meum is recorded in this youtube video:
