Here is a method that will train organists properly for the traditional role of accompanying hymns and providing suitable service music. It is a comprehensive approach that introduces the techniques of organ playing step-by-step. Aimed at pianists of grade 5 standard plus, The Church Organist begins by introducing the organ -- its console, manuals and stops -- before exploring the pedals, good manuals and pedals technique, coordinating hands with feet, proper use of stops, the basics of improvisation and many other skills important to today's church organist. Volume 3: Improvisation will be published in May 2010. Christopher Tambling is Organist and Master of the Schola Cantorum of Downside Abbey. He was an organ scholar at Canterbury Cathedral and St Peter's College, Oxford, and is a Fellow of the Royal College of Organists.
