This is a most welcome set, with not only the excellent arrangement of the famous Adagio, but a treasury of original works for organ and other arrangements, many published for the first time. Barber is well known for a handful of works, but he achieved a high level of artistic consistency across so many genres. The lush harmonies of his solo songs are evident throughout the collection; his perceptive and inventive ear for orchestration is also apparent, particularly in the miniature tone poem To Longwood Gardens (beautifully edited here by Iain Quinn). There is a forthright Prelude and Fugue; a beautiful suite originally for carillon; a thundering Chorale that would make an excellent ceremonial introit; and preludes on Wondrous Love (a shape note melody) and Silent Night (transcribed by the composer from his orchestral work Die Natalis).
