  • October 03, 2012 First Rate Literature for the Aspiring Organist

    I am one of those organists who learned to play organ in response to the church's need for music and my need for income. This collection meets the need for organ music that is suitable for church, as well as being quality literature. There are any number of pieces...

    on this collection that will come together after just an hour or two of preparation, as well as many that are suitable for recital. This is volume is the cornerstone of many an organist's library.

  • November 19, 2008 Review of The Practical Organist

    This volume of organ works is an EXTREMELY nice addition to any organists library. The title is somewhat misleading in that not all the works are "short." This edition is very well compiled. I am a music major (organ performance - sacred music) at Bridgewater College, and found this organ volume...

    a great addition to my library of study!

  • November 06, 2008 Broad Spectrum of 50 Guilmant Works

    Guilmant has been neglected by many organists. This collection gives a broad range of pieces for services - preludes, liturgical, postludes. It's an easy collection to thumb through and just try things. Brings a new flavor to many congregations. Give it a try.
