This Is Newly Printed Music
(1838-1889), a contemporary of Dudley Buck and John Knowles Paine, was one of the early American organ virtuosi
who composed many works for the organ. This composition serves as a showcase for the Vox Humana which was an especially expressive stop as
found on the Boston Music Hall Walcker organ. It would be a pleasant concert piece as well as an offertory in services. The great engraving
on the cover, rotatated 90 degrees counter-clockwise, is of the III/42 Jardine (1873) in the Brooklyn Tabernacle Presbyterian Church,
Brooklyn, New York. Easy.
