It provides the repertoire-hungry organist with preludes, postludes, and shorter descriptive works, suitable for either liturgical or recital use. Alongside new editions of original organ repertoire, there are newly commissioned arrangements of selected choral and piano works, exploring a wide variety of textures and atmospheres.
