  • April 05, 2012 LYRIC PRELUDES, ROMANTIC STYLE

    THese are beautifully written, short pieces in all 24 MAJOR/minor KEYS. Very creative writing, easy for students of modest ability to master in a reasonably short time. All different ,moods and tempos, from slow/tranquil to fast/tempetuos. My students love them; and, they are also useful to, say...

    , church organists for organ or piano interludes. great stuff!!!

    William Gillock was a personal friend. His romantic composing in easier pieces is so refreshing. He is surely missed.

    Gillocks 'fountain of diana' is nothing less than beatiful.If properly played with the soul the reward is a feeling of something only the heart can touch.I strongly recomend this gorgous piece to those who love to feel music, not just play it.Beautifully done.

    Gillock offers rich music accessible every day musicians. As an adult learner with children and a full time job, I do not have time to develop into an "interpreter of the classics." This collection of lyric preludes is perfect for me. The compositions sound rich and impress the audiences. It...

    is perfect for intermediate-level musicians who want to share beautiful music.

    This collection of pieces by Gillock is a treasure. I have never seen a group of pieces organized this way; Major scale followed by one in the corresponding minor. He shows great versatility and creativity. I highly recommend it.
