Description

The Oxford Book of Lent and Easter Organ Music brings together a superb array of repertoire for use from Ash Wednesday through to Pentecost, providing a comprehensive volume for this extended liturgical period. The pieces--largely based on well-known hymn tunes--vary in style and length, suiting a range of purposes, from processionals and interludes to voluntaries and recital works. A range of technical difficulty makes the book useful for players of differing abilities, and clean and uncluttered scores leave interpretative decisions to the performer. An invaluable resource for a major part of the church year.

  • 34 pieces for manuals and pedals, suitable for use from Lent through to Pentecost
  • Seven brand-new commissions by important names such as David Briggs, Naji Hakim, and Francis Jackson
  • A variety of musical forms, including preludes, toccatas, fanfares, and variations
  • Covers 17th to 21st centuries, from major historic organ composers including Scheidt, Mendelssohn, and Reger, through 20th-century luminaries Harris and Leighton, to contemporary figures such as Malcolm Riley, David Bednall, and Christopher Tambling
  • Original organ compositions plus new arrangements of favourites from Handel's Messiah and J. S. Bach's St Matthew Passion
  • An index of hymn tunes, and pieces arranged in liturgical order
