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 new 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.

Mount Martha Victoria AUSTRALIA GB
I am an elderly keyboard player of average ability and one who loves the majestic sound of the pipe organ. I recently purchased a Yamaha keybord with an organ voice and I am thrilled with the sounds I can produce using the printed music in th Oxford Service Music for Organ Vol 1. I will certainly purchase Vol2 in the near future.

Buckingham GB Teacher and performer
A pupil introduced me to this series. The selection of music is very wide ranging and they are just the right length (so many fine organ pieces are just too long for church use alas). These anthologies are invaluable for teaching and everyday use.

Beaucoup de choix de musique pour jouer durant la liturgie (preludes, interludes et sorties). J'achèterai certainement la collection.
Dommage que les textes ne soient qu'en anglais. (introduction et 4ème de couverture)

Musicroom Reviews

Rating Review
Customer Rating I was surprised but also disappointed by this book. Surprised because I expected the pieces to be manual arrangements of the pieces in the Manuals and Pedals volume but I was delighted to find it is an entirely different collection of music which is all very easily playable. However I was disappointed as many of the pieces are very short: a large number are only 3 or 4 lines of music and only 9 pieces make it on to a second page. Nevertheless a useful volume.

Customer Rating For a convert from piano to organ [for personal as well as for our church] this is a great resource

Customer Rating Both Book 1 & 2 are very useful for services that require a lot of incidental music. Excellent range of music for those who can't use pedals, but also very good for those who can.
