Description:

The Organist’s Craft is a rich celebration of the instrument that has for centuries led the song of the Church. It is filled with practical advice from preeminent organists who offer techniques for beautiful and effective registration, fearless improvisation, keyboard leadership, and engaging hymn-playing.

These master organists and organ builders also address the mechanics of the pipe organ, offer advice for the purchase and installation of re-purposed instruments from churches no longer in use, and give a primer in the basic maintenance of this majestic instrument—invaluable information to pastors and parish committees who want a working knowledge of the instrument as they move into a new building or renovation project. Full of insights and practical information for both novice and seasoned musicians, The Organist’s Craft celebrates the magnificence of the organ and its place in sacred song
