This Is Newly Printed Music
(1839-1909), a contemporary
of Eugene Thayer and John Knowles Paine, was one of the early American organ
virtuosi who composed many works for the organ. Wedding March
published in 1871, the year Buck returned to Boston after losing his church,
organ, house, and studio in Chicago after the fire. Old Hundredth, “The Doxology,” is quoted near the end. The beautiful color cover of the original edition was
specially gratifying to restore and stunningly displays the engraver’s
art. The original pedaling indications are useful in understanding how Buck
played and taught. The entire piece is of moderate difficulty.
