Selected by James Conely. These 35 contemporary style miniatures for organ are lovely improvisatory pieces written in various styles and moods, in most major, minor and modal keys. Several pieces are marked 'con Ped.,' but since they are generally easy and most are written on two staves instead of three, they may be played on two manuals alone. Registration suggestions are included.

These are useful for church services, weddings, recitals and civic occasions. Most are playable on organ or piano. "Elegy" is absolutely gorgeous on an early 20th century American tracker organ with a dulciana and a gedeckt against each other with a pedal bourdon underneath. The marches and corteges make excellent...
