My excursions to = the Harold Washington Library downtown (the largest free-standing public = library in America) have landed me in the (large) organ music section = often. There are scores there that are not in print and filled with many = nice service pieces. Dale mentioned the Augsburg series. Last time I was on their website, they = had the option to view many of the pieces in PDF, and purchase them = individually. (Side note about above: There is nothing like buying a book of music for = $40 and you only like 4 out of 25 arrangements. Order them on approval = thru the church, and play thru a few. Pepper music is great for this) Dale may also be acquaintances with Henry Glass who is in MO. Henry works = with MelBay, who distributes the wonderful anthologies of Organ music from = Kevin Mayhew. Mayhew is always putting out good music for Organ....and = their Bach edition is worth the money. Henry can certainly tell you whats = new and whats on th ebest seller list.   Gone back to zzzzz..its tooooo early on Sat.     --------------------------------- Do you Yahoo!? Yahoo!

From: "Emily Adams" <eadams@cinci.rr.com> Date: Sat, 16 Apr 2005 15:38:22 -0400   Cecil said he had taken a post in a Lutheran church and asked for music recommendations. As far as the German chorale literature goes, in addition =   to some collections and composers already suggested (I love Walther's cheerful, tuneful, accessible music!) I suggest the Brahms chorale = preludes, the 80 Chorale Preludes of Old Masters (pub. Keller), Kevin Hildebrand's = set of hymn improvisations, and his Easy Preludes collection (Concordia). I've =   also collected several volumes of Concordia's Parish Organist set which I find marginally useful.   As far as the traditional English/American hymn tunes go, I find June Nixon's Organ Miniatures and Malcolm Archer's After the Last Verse = extremely handy. Both published by Kevin Mayhew.   And here's a link that might be handy: http://www.pldi.net/~murrows/basic.html   Best wishes on your new position!   Emily A.   P.S. I had to create an organ library from scratch over the last couple years. I've found Ebay to be an excellent resource.
