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. This piece was published by Morgan’s friend, Ernst
Eberhard, to whom it was dedicated. 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.
