He had originally composed his Sakskøbing Preludes of well-known Danish hymns for organ, and performed them in Sakskøbing Church, where he had inaugurated the church's new digital organ. They were later instrumentalized for the ensemble.

Naji Hakim: Sakskøbing preludes (My heart always wanders, Closer, God, to you, O God, you know and know, To say goodbye to the world, Hail, Savior and Redeemer !, The dark night is past, Now the flower time comes, Easter flower! What will you here ?, Up, all the things that God has done, O Christianity !, So very much it met us first in our baptism, Command your ways) ()
