A wonderful collection of attractive and varied pieces, specially selected and organized to suit the needs of church organists - suitable for students, players, and church musicians of all abilities. Each book groups pieces according to service needs: Preludes, Interludes, Processional, Postludes. Attractive repertoire, spanning the 16th-21st centuries with some new pieces written especially for the collection. Pieces edited afresh to present the music clearly and practically for players, with registration and tempo suggestions for each piece. A number of pieces through the collection have been selected for the ABRSM Organ Syllabus (from 2011).
