A classic text on Organ technique. Sir John's book, first published in 1877, quickly became the classic for beginners- so popular that publishers Schirmer, Ditson, and Presser each issued its own "Americanized" edition in the early twentieth century. In addition to the seven Organ pieces of the original edition, including five of Stainer's own works and two pieces by Guilmant, three additional works round of this Dover edition. This edition is a slightly expanded republication of the edition first published by G. Schirmer, New York in 1909, edited by F. Flaxington Harker. Introduction to this Dover edition by Rollin Smith.
