by Charles R Ford,
reprint of 1877 Schmidt edition.
This simple, beautiful piece is a study in simplicity and subtlety. Impromptu
printed on heavy 120 pound acid-free paper. 4 pages. It would sound good on
a small organ, a large organ, a theatre organ, your organ! As with many pieces
published before the 1890s, it includes pedalling. It’s composed to sound extemporaneous,
and many if not most organists are called upon to improvise. Ford also makes much use of the swell shades.
It's got a nice melody and some contrapuntal interest. Also, the pedal part is not too hard.
This is the only organ piece I know written by a Unitarian organist. Highest quality guaranteed. Graphics
