Although Sigfrid Karg-Elert has long made his way from insider's tip to widely acknowledged master his organ pieces are still considered technically demanding today. In the Sempre semplice collection players might be misled by the sweeping sempre (always) for the twelve Organ Pieces op. 142 (I) contain some passages that are far from being semplice. A number of pieces from this collection were derived from harmonium works whereby Karg-Elert sometimes made quite radical changes when he revised the more than 20-year-old pieces adding effects that were more idiomatic to the organ. In addition to being wonderfully suited for organ practice and teaching this collection will also help organists discover a previously little-known side to Karg-Elert.

The ongoing Karg-Elert edition has the same virtues as the B&H editions of older repertoires: clean computer print on off-white paper with informative preface and editorial notes a reliable and easily grasped musical text and a keen regard for Karg-Elert's precise and detailed notation.
