* Easy Organ Pieces from the 19th Century

Volume 3 in our series of easy nineteenth-century organ music
provides semi-professional
organists with another collection of short one or two manual organ
pieces.

The editor Martin Weyer, an organist regarded as an authority on
nineteenth-century
organ music, has limited his selection to works that combine solid
craftsmanship with
ease of performance.

In essence, volume 3 follows the editorial principles of its two
predecessors while increasing
the number of truly easy pieces. Among the composers represented is
the Dutchman
Johannes Barend Litzau (1822–1893), whose Preludes op. 13 and 17 are
simple yet elegant
works for beginners. The Czech composer Johann Beranek (1813–1885),
on the other hand,
was more concerned with counterpoint: his Ten Fugues appear here for
the first time with
detailed analyses to underscore the volume’s “learned” slant. Carl
Gottlieb Umbreit (1763–1829)
and his colleague Michael Gotthard Fischer (1773–1829) stand at the
borderline between a
galant organ style derived from Kittel and the early romantic age.
Another composer who took
part in this subtle stylistic evolution was Johann Christian
Heinrich Rinck.

The brevity of the compositions makes them perfectly suitable for
use as preludes and
postludes in church services of all denominations. The volume
contains detailed comments
on performance practice and a list of sources.

- Technically easy romantic literature

- Also playable on smaller instruments

- Short pieces well suited for use in church services

- Notes on performance practice
