Treasury of Gospel Favorites for Organ, No. 1 composed by Eugene Mccluskey. For organ: 2-staff. Sacred, Hymn-Based Collection. Moderately easy. Published by Lorenz Publishing Company (LO.KK255).
The gospel song, conceived and born in an era when things of the spirit were far more real to the believer than they are to most of us 20th-century Christians; loved by many, loathed by some, unknown by few; heartfelt expression of joy, contrition, personal experience, heaven. Here, under one cover, is a real treasure chest of 49 all-time gospel favorites: many from the golden era of the gospel song; many 20th-century songs. Also included are several relatively new songs of the past15-20 years which have become established favorites. These treasures have been gleaned from our most popular collections of gospel songs, and are compiled here for quick, handy reference. The arrangements are all artistic, yet easy and melodious. Registrations are given for pipe, electronic, and Hammond organs as well as spinet registrations for most of the selections.
