"The young organist, having successfully accomplished Rinck's first three months (a not inconsiderable achievement in itself) may well wish to explore this eminently practical and highly attractive set of twelve original pieces by Ian Higginson – 'all occasions' are certainly covered in this fascinating and original set of short studies. Such is the author's natural musicianship and command of his instrument that one may defy any organist, on opening the volume, not to wish to play one or more of the pieces immediately – such are their inherent individual qualities.

"The presentation is excellent and this practical publication is strongly recommended – one or more could well form short recital 'encores'.

“Although some very well-known melodies are used for the basis of individual pieces in this collection, I found the most fascinating and compelling piece  to be Higginson's original 'Improvisation' – but it requires a finished technique from the performer.”

– Robert Matthew-Walker, in The Organ, September 2020
