Garth C Edmundson
(1892-1971) was born on April 11, 1892, in Prospect, Pennsylvania. He studied music with
Harvey Gaul in Pittsburgh, Lynnwood Farnam in New York, Joseph Bonnet in Paris, and Isador Phillipp at the Paris Conservatory.
After serving several churches in western Pennsylvania and eastern Ohio, he was organist-director from 1945 until 1968 at
First Presbyterian Church in New Castle, Pennsylvania. He was awarded an honorary Doctor of Music degree in 1957 by
Westminster College in New Wilmington, Pennsylvania, where he had taught for a year.
The program for Humoreque Fantastique: “This highly imaginative composition
opens with softly muted horns and flutes, as though announcing the entrance of a merry band of elves. After we hear their
dance and the playing of their harps, a hymn is heard in the distance. Then follows a return to their dance as they vanish
back into the enchanted forest.” Moderately easy.
