The 32 pieces in this anthology have all been specially chosen by Robert Gower because they have a touch of grandeur and are guaranteed to make a striking impression on any audience or congregation! Given such an inclusive interpretation of ceremonial, the contents cover a range of moods and periods, from baroque to contemporary, from stately to extrovert, from major-key exuberance to minor-key gravitas.

All the pieces are immediately attractive and accessible, both to the player and to the listener, and virtually all the works here will be popular at weddings, as voluntaries, or for recitals. With a few exceptions, most of the music is not difficult and has been wonderfully set here for Organ Manuals and Pedals.

Alongside established favourites by Handel, Elgar, Boellmann, Mendelssohn and Purcell, there are contemporary pieces by Francis Jackson, Herbert Sumsion, Grayston Ives, Bob Chilcott and John Madden. You will soon find this volume proving to be an essential addition to the organist’s library.

Cheshire GB Director of Music and
An unusual range of music, presenting enough challenge to be interesting but not taking long to learn.
The actual book is poorly made as you cannot make it lie flat on the stand without breaking the spine. A coupe of pieces are very common and most organists will already have them.
