This Is Newly Printed Music
Everett Ellsworth Truette
(1861-1933) was born in Rockland, Maryland, and began studying music after a
temporary eye condition halted his training as a civil engineer. He received degrees in music from the New England Conservatory
and Boston University. He served for seven years as editor for The Etude
and for two years at The Organ
, gave hundreds of
organ concerts, wrote a book, Organ Registration
, and was
a founder of the American Guild of Organists
He called this piece a suite
and not a symphony
, and each of these movements was also published separately.
In 1916, no less than Harvey Grace wrote in
French Organ Music, Past and Present
about this in regard to the organ symphonies of Widor:
|The title “symphonies” is perhaps hardly suitable for works which are really collections of pieces.
As some of the movements — especially in the earlier sets — are of slender proportions, and as we now
associate the term with music on a big scale, the works might be more fairly called suites. With the exception of the
sixth and seventh (and perhaps the fifth) they hardly suggest the symphonic to those of us who associate the title
with the great orchestral creations in that form. However, the name is little, the matter much, and with eleven symphonies
on the tapis, we must not dwell longer on the title page.
