An Irish Legend, A Holy Night, A Special Star, and A Sentimental Meditation

May’s pieces are an assortment that I think you will like. Two of them tell a story that everyone can enjoy, one is based on a hymntune, and one is a meditation. Please read below to see what is interesting to you.


1. AN IRISH LEGEND by Roland Diggle. This theme and variations is in the spirit of Irish folk tunes and is perfect for Saint Patrick’s Day.

2. THE HOLY NIGHT, by George Vail. You may know his anthem, “King All Glorious,” but I’d like to show you his only published organ piece. His quiet pastorale contains “Silent Night” (Stille Nacht) and it is easy to learn.

3. MORAVIAN MORNING STAR by Harvey Gaul. This is Gaul’s free arrangement of the tune for “Morning Star, O Cheering Sight.” This colorful treatment would be an excellent introduction to the singing of the hymn.

4. MEDITATION SENTIMENTALE, by Howard Savage. This lovely piece would sound good on any organ, church, concert, or theatre. There is an optional chime part, and I think it would fit in concert or for a funeral service. Its flexibility offers many uses.

MONTHLY DISCOUNT BUNDLE. To get the four pieces mentioned above, I offer a special price so you can buy all of the pieces above with one click and save money in the deal. I welcome your support, and if you don’t want to play a particular piece in the group, consider giving it to a student or another organist.

I hope some of you will make and share some videos of these so we can enjoy them. Thank you all for your interest in this music.
