George Shearing was one of the most well-known jazz pianists of his era. As a composer, he is known for his hundreds of popular titles, including the jazz standard Lullaby of Birdland. In the late 1970s, Shearing produced his only foray into classical church music, this volume of organ pieces (also available in a piano edition, KK228). Shearing's appealing jazz-inflected idiom makes for distinctive and memorable treatments of classic American hymn tunes. Shearing collaborated closely with Dale Wood in creating the details of these idiomatic organ arrangements.

  • February 09, 2019 Every organist needs this!

    Thrilled to have discovered this. Organ preludes (or postludes or anything you need an organ-solo hymn tune setting for) by George Shearing! How cool is that! Some of these have minimal pedal, some moderate pedal, and a few more elaborate. Why aren't these a lot more famous? Tunes...

    : New Britain (Amazing Grace), Middlebury (Come away to the skies), Restoration (Come ye sinners poor and needy), Antioch, I Love Thee, Land of Rest (Jerusalem my happy home), Consolation, Distress, and Happy Land. Style is mellow—Shearing was a jazz legend, and his jazz sense informs these pieces, but they are classical in spirit and won't alarm your congregation.
