This anthology offers a rich addition of twenty-eight new works for organ to this notable composer's catalog of treasures. Each began as an improvisational sketch from a worship service or hymn festival and was later written down and edited into a finished piece. To round out the anthology, we are also republishing twelve hymn introductions and harmonizations published a generation ago in the hopes that organists will rediscover their usefulness in enlivening assembly song.

The Organist Emeritus at the Mormon Tabernacle has written this original suite in five movements: Tribute, a sort of trumpet tune; Fugue, playful with flute stops; A Mother's Lullaby, with strings and flutes; Scherzetto, with trumpet against bright flutes; and Exaltation, a warm and dignified registration that brightens and builds to a dramatic close. Excellent in recital, suitable for worship despite the fact that it is not hymn-based.

This score is based on the old British Carol "I saw three ships." There are seven variations preceding the fugue. After the theme has been stated, the first two variations extend the theme; the third variation introduces the pedals. The next three variations are in the style of Baroque genres: the fourth variation is a no‰l written as an homage to Daquin; the fifth variation is a figured chorale, in which the chorale Von Himmel hoch, da komm ich her makes its first appearance; and the sixth is a ...
Written months after the birth the composer's son, Tallis Sebastian, the idea of a series of variations on Tallis' canon was a "no-brainer."
