New Music for Organ Thursday, February 09, 2012

If you missed our recent Organ Music Clinic, you can still check out these new titles recommended by Stanton’s keyboard staff:

Communion Hymns Vol 1
This is the first of two volumes containing the complete Holy Communion hymns from Evangelical Lutheran Worship (ELW). These settings are not too long, not too short, and not too hard (just right!) to be played either before or after the singing of the hymn.

Biblical Sketches: The Lexington Organ Book
A collection of original pieces based upon biblical passages. This diverse collection was the result of a composition contest for the region V chapter ofthe American Guild of Organists. The compositions vary in style and mood and are designed to reflect the meaning of the selected passages of scripture thatare indicated at the top of each piece. A truly creative and interesting volume of compositions.

Gospel Music For Manuals
Eight gospel favorites are given lush, emotive settings that are so satisfyingone barely notices that they are for manuals only. Useful for preludes, interludes, or communion, these pieces are suitable for a small organ but would also benefit from the varied tone colors of a larger instrument.

Yours Is The Glory
Pastor/musician/composer Ronald Roschke of Colorado has contributed his first volume of organ variation-sets on world tunes, which are perfect pre-service material for times when the respective tunes are sung in worship.
