George Washbourne Morgan
(1822-1892), born in Gloucester, England, emigrated to the US in 1853 where he first
served at St Thomas Church, New York City, and later at Grace Church and others. Morgan was described in 1889 as “a fluent
pedal player” and was lauded in that “no man can obtain more pleasing results from a strange organ.” He was
my kind of organist because he often played characteristic pieces as well as Bach, church music as well as transcriptions. Moderately easy.
