An important contribution to the repertoire for both the church organist and the recitalist! In this unique compilation you’ll find organ works by composers from the late 19th century to the present day. A number of beloved and familiar spirituals are masterfully arranged. Titles like “King of Kings” by Ralph Simpson, “Were You There” by Uzee Brown, “A Little More Faith in Jesus” by John W. Work, and “Go Down, Moses” by W. C. Handy can add the perfect touch to a worship service or provide a welcome touchstone for a comprehensive recital program. Original works include “Retrospection” by Florence B. Price and “Arietta” by Samuel Coleridge-Taylor. These 13 pieces encompass a wide range of style, length, and difficulty. .
