This four-volume anthology contains a sparkling selection of pieces and represents all the major composers of the period. It includes pieces in all the main genres, with Cornet and Trumpet Voluntaries, Echo Voluntaries, fugal works with slow introductions, and Full Voluntaries; as such, the collection offers a wide range of attractive music suitable for both church and recital use.
Each volume contains an extended Introduction, with information on instruments of the period, registration, ornamentation, and notes on the composers. An important feature of the collection is an editorial realization of the cadenzas which occur at key points in some of the pieces; these complete the works and demonstrate how they would have been performed at the time.
With extended historical information and a wonderful array of pieces carefully edited from original sources, this is a major collection that will be of interest to organists of all abilities.
Edited by David Patrick
David Patrick was a pupil of and assistant to Harold Darke at St Michael's, Cornhill, London from 1959 to 1966, during which time he gave many recitals and was awarded a Fellowship of Trinity College, London. Since then he has firmly established himself as a recital organist, accompanist (organ, harpsichord, and piano), and conductor throughout the UK and Europe. He has also made several recordings of organ music. He founded and runs the music publishing company Fitzjohn Music Publications, which has an extensive catalogue of keyboard, vocal, and choral music, including many editions of 18th- and 19th-century organ music. He is also a choral director and adjudicator at numerous festivals and competitions in the UK and overseas.
