George Whitefield Chadwick
(1854-1931) was a very unusual man. After dropping out of high school, he entered
the New England Conservatory as a “special student” and studied with Dudley Buck and Eugene Thayer. With no degree,
he became the director of the music department at Olivet College. After studying in Germany, still with no degree, he began
teaching theory and composition at New England Conservatory. He then became their director and supervised their new building
(which is still there). After years of teaching, he was finally awarded an honorary degree (M.A.Hon.) from ... Yale!
Chadwick’s original composition, was
arranged for organ solo in 1923, and this is the edition presented here.
