Adolf von Henselt
(1814–1889) was born in Bavaria and studied music with Hummel. He moved to St Petersburg, Russia, where his piano technique influenced the beginnings of the Russian school of playing. Both of these were originally piano pieces.
Alfred Herbert Brewer was born in Gloucester, England, on
June 21, 1865. He was highly educated and well-trained in
music. He studied organ with such teachers as Charles Villiers Stanford, he
won scholarships, he earned multiple degrees, he was awarded Hon.R.A.M. and
F.R.C.O, and was knighted by the king. He was a well-rounded musician who
was able to bring orchestral favorites to the organ in transcriptions that
are approachable and always easier to play than those by other well-known
organists such as Edwin Lemare.
