Clarence Eddy (1851-1937)
studied with Dudley Buck, played for Franz Liszt, and was regarded as a leading concert organist for decades. “Old Hundred”
is probably the most widely-known church tune in the world. Eddy wrote this festival arrangement of it to conclude 100 recitals on the
III/30 Johnson organ in the Hershey School of Musical Art. He recorded it as an organ roll for Welte (please listen below). And, at
age 82, he played it on his last program for the National Association of Organists Convention. He shared the program with Porter Heaps
(of Hammond organ fame) and Virgil Fox. Moderately difficult.
