This Is Newly Printed Music
Edward F Johnston
(1879-1919) was born in Scotland and emigrated to the United States in 1907 where he lived thereafter.
Johnston became involved with Robert Hope-Jones and his Wurlitzer Unit Orchestra in 1912 and became an advocate for Hope-Jones as designer
and builder. He played Wurlitzers in theatres and served in churches in New York City. He first performed Evensong
in November of 1910 at Cornell University. Moderately easy.
|“Evensong” was dedicated to Johnston’s mother and
includes this poetic program:
|And far away through the arches dim
A sad, sweet melody,
Like the wind as it wails its evening hymn
Over the rustling sea,
Rises now like a bird on the wing,
Now sinks to an amorous murmuring.
