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.

        Musicroom Reviews

        This is an excellent book. Dr.Stainer was rightly regarded as an expert in all areas of organ work, and this book not only provides us with a good selection of playable music, it also gives a history of the organ, how to play it (hands & feet), use of the stops and many other things. This is in every way an excellent book.
