Orchestra
Composed by Marcel Dupre (1886-1971). Masterworks; Organ - Method or Collection. Belwin Edition (H. W. Gray). 20th Century and Classical Period. Collection. With introductory text. 120 pages. Published by Belwin Music (AP.GB00195).

Item Number: AP.GB00195

ISBN 0769241956. 9x12 inches.

This book contains 79 easy Chorales for organ written on the melodies of the 79 old Chorales which Bach used in his Chorale Preludes. It is needless to say the scheme has not been to give another version of the Bach Chorales. The object of the present book is merely educational. It has been conceived with a view to making the student familiar with the magnificent melodies of the Chorales, in the earlier stages of his work, and to prepare him the better for the study of the Chorales, which are too difficult for beginners.

    Nice very short chorale improvisations on common Lutheran hymn tunes. Too short, too gloomy. Not very useful.

    This should be in every organists library. They serve as wonderful learning pieces for beginning organists. Dupre has also done us the favor of fingering and pedaling every note. That way students also get a sense of how learn better fingerings. However, this book is not only useful for students...

    . For more experienced organists most of these piece can be learned in a short period of time and make wonderful preludes, offertories, postludes, etc. I highly recommend this collection.

    This is a useful book for somebody who wants short pieces with pedal to learn for offertories and such. A lot of them are pretty similar though. Maybe Dupre was a little tired.
