The compositions posted on this blog were inspired by the sound of the historic 1924 IV/53 Kimball Symphonic pipe organ of 143 stops at the Saint Louis Scottish Rite Cathedral (photo right), a fully expressive and flexible instrument equipped with over 3,500 pipes plus traps and percussions.
Twenty Four PIeces for the Organ is a major collection written so that the stretch for the hands is an octave or less. The individual pieces are solidly constructed and not the kind of music that's likely to disappear after a few years and be replaced with something more up to date.
This music is tuneful, effective, full of ideas, and sure to interest every organist from beginner to intermediate to advanced ... professional, amateur, or student.
