Camille Saint-Saens: Organ Album

Books | Organ

Catalogue No: 9780193355927
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album
This is a wonderful collection of popular and some less well-known pieces. It contains three movements from The Carnival of the Animals, the slow movement and the famous Maestoso section from the 'Organ' Symphony (No. 3), the meltingly beautiful aria 'Softly awakes my heart' from the opera Samson and Delilah, the opening section of the Danse Macabre, and several other pieces illustrating the range of Saint-Saëns' compositional style. All the pieces are immensely playable and have been chosen to suit the needs of both church and concert organists.

      It depends on what you require. This is not organ music, but a collection of arrangements for organ. Some of them would be very suitable for a secular recital, but only one (Priere) might be useful in a religious serevice.The level of difficulty is moderate, and pedals are required.

      Not original organ pieces but a nice selection of good music arranged for organ. Particularly glad to find the Organ Symphony Maestoso (extract).
