Mr. Raasch has written extensively for organ, organ and brass choir, organ and orchestra and concert band. Most of these works are comissioned, or are written as part of the St. John's Lutheran, Orange CA Bach Cantata Vespers series. In most cases, the instrumentation is set before the works are created, so they are purpose built for the event. Most commonly, a baroque orchestra (strings and perhaps 2 oboes and/or 3 trumpets) is used in the arrangements, because of the genesis of the work.

Note that the recordings are made live with perhaps less than ideal microphone placement, but they will give you an idea of what things sound like.
