The authors' new approach to learning two playing techniques offers a systematic method for mastering the modern, legato technique needed for organ music composed arter 1750, as well as an articulated technique for earlier works. The authors also present useful information on accompanying anthems and solos and on adapting piano and orchestral accompaniments to the organ.

MEDIA REVIEWS
for students with eyes (and ears) wide open to the whole of the field, in a position to understand the instrument and its music as historical artefacts - indeed, as a magnificent legacy from the past - and not merely as vehicles for self-promotion, this book will be a wonderful resource. * Musical Letters, vol. 82, no. 3 *
insightful comparisons of the organ and the piano - which are frequent and to the point - certainly should reach students at the level where they are. ... Especially convincing is the brief overview of the twentieth-century American organ. * Musical Letters, vol. 82, no. 3 *
Their first two chapters ... provide a particularly elegant presentation of this tradition, enriched by an impressive musicological rigour that in itself sets a new standard for such an undertaking. * Musical Letters, vol. 82, no. 3 *
a new and provocative way of teaching organ performance ... With an appealing tone that is both serious and optimistic, yet includes occasional asides of homespun advice, they juxtapose a detailed discussion of the standard way the organ has been taught for the last century or so ... with an equally systematic method for playing early music. * Musical Letters, vol. 82, no. 3 *
