Edward Shippen Barnes (1887–1958)

Duetto Pastorale Back

Barnes is chiefly remembered today for his harmonization of the carol “Angels We Have Heard on High,” which is found in numerous hymnals. He studied at Yale University and with the Parisian organist, Louis Vierne. His compositions for organ include two symphonies and two suites. This pastorale duet was published in 1961.
