From a letter Austin wrote to Carlton (Sam) Young:

“…In the 90’s I wrote dozens of sacred solos for Darcey Press, primarily a publisher for Christian Science singers. (They never have a choir!) Also in the 90’s and in the 2000’s it was more vocal solos and scores of organ preludes on hymn tunes…When I finally counted all of this up there were more than 1,000 pieces published…”
