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
“Vesper Hymn” is subtitled “A short Offertory on two familiar hymn tunes,” and in 1915 this was true. In 2016, only the second tune, Eventide
(“Abide with me”), is widely recognized. Moderate.
