This is a major collection of organ music for students, players, and church musicians of all levels and abilities. Compiler and editor Anne Marsden Thomas has drawn on her long experience of teaching and playing to select the most attractive, tuneful repertoire in two sets of graded anthologies, one set (3 volumes) for manuals only, the second set (3 volumes) for manuals and pedals. Within each book the pieces are grouped according to service needs into Preludes, Interludes, Processionals, and Postludes. The repertoire spans the 16th to the 21st century, with some new pieces written especially for the collection. A number of pieces throughout the collection have been selected for the ABRSM organ syllabus. The result is a wonderful collection of repertoire for all players, containing a wealth of attractive and varied pieces that will offer much practical support for church musicians and enrich and develop their playing.show more

Review quote

Indeed, careful consideration of the materials should allow for the preparation of apposite music to complement the mood of the day and, where appropriate, the tone of the Gospel . . . Anne is to be applauded for the vast amount of repertoire knowledge, thought, work and scholarship that must have gone into this huge undertaking which makes a significant contribution to the repertoire for teaching, sight-reading and performance purposes. * Andrew Fletcher, Organists' Review, February 2011 *show more
