William Lloyd Webber: Centenary Collection (Organ)

Books | Organ

Publisher: Kevin Mayhew Ltd.
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album

Arranged here for Organ, the Centenary Collection celebrates the life and works of the British organist and composer William Lloyd Webber.

Born in 1914, by the age of 14 Lloyd Webber had already become a well-known Organ recitalist, giving frequent performances at many important churches and cathedrals throughout Great Britain. He won an Organ scholarship to Mercer's School, later winning a further scholarship to the Royal College of Music, where he studied composition with Ralph Vaughan Williams and gained his FRCO diploma at nineteen.

Parallel to his activities as an organist, Lloyd Webber began to compose and, from 1945 to the mid-1950s, he wrote music in many different forms: Vocal and instrumental, Choral and Organ, Chamber and Orchestral. Some of his best known works include the oratorio 'St. Francis of Assisi', the Orchestral tone poem 'Aurora', the Sonatinas for Viola and Piano and Flute and Piano, and numerous songs, Organ pieces and Choral works.

Showcasing Lloyd Webber as a composer who was true to himself and who fully embraced his signature style, the music in the Centenary Collection is romantic, melodious and – above all – heartfelt.

        The Saviour (William Lloyd Webber) is a very impressive composition for SATB, 2 soloists and organ. It's simular to The Crucifixion (Stainer).

        A really useful assembly of Lloyd Webber's usually very dispersed music. I discovered many pieces I was previously unaware of. Printing is very legible, as usual for Mayhew publications.
        There is a brief introduction by his son Julian
        The apostrophe found in it's during Julian's introduction!

        Moderately easy pieces. Nice tuneful melodies with a beginning, a middle and a satisfying end. All the pieces are useable for voluntaries at a church service.
        The binding of the book! The pages are springy, and easily turn back, once turned! The paper is too thick. Use a thinner paper!
