A compilation of popular organ pieces for weddings, in simplified arrangements for manuals only

' ... reflects the high standard we have come to expect from [Oxford University Press]. The covers are attractively designed and the books delightful to handle, demanding a performance of any of their contents worthy of their own material quality - a noble attainment when some may be temptedto say 'Anything will do!' Laudate`No Widor here, but just about everything else you could wish for, all musically and skilfully arranged by Malcolm Archer . . . more capable players having occasionally to play a manuals-only wedding (or even one on a piano or electronic keyboard!) will prefer this OUP volume.' Organists'Review`Oxford University Press would not venture into the congested area of popular organ music without good reason... Taking stock of what's already congesting this area, OUP obviously decided to weed out textures more thoroughly without turning pieces into sickly relics... The book's 27 piecesoffer plenty of variety, and cover the range of what might be termed `simple'. In any case, the user ultimately plays what technique allows. May heaven preserve us from those who publicly ignore that precaution.' Choir and Organ`The collection comprises the best-loved and most often asked for organ music. For the keyboard player who is a reluctant organist the collection is a gem. For the young organist who wants material for technical playing with a purpose, this book is for you too... It will be a valuablecompanion in an organist's library.' Musical Opinion Malcolm Archer was educated at King Edward VII School, Lytham, the Royal College of Music, and Jesus College, Cambridge, where he was organ scholar. He studied the organ with Ralph Downes, Gillian Weir and Nicolas Kynaston, and composition with Herbert Sumsion and Alan Ridout. He is a prolific composer with well over 200 published works, which receive regular performances on BBC radio and TV. Archer was formerly Organist and Director of Music at St Paul's Cathedral and is now Director of Chapel Music at Winchester College.

    I am not an organist. I am a flutist. However, there is nothing in this book that doesn't get requested at a wedding or some other formal occasion. The arrangements are well done and any C instrument can play the melody line with most keybard players being able to play these parts.Very easy to mark for repeats or stopping places. I take it to anything formal that I play.

  • By Duncan on August 9, 2017

    Useful but too "Easy" and excessively simplified and abridged

  • By Cass Kwan on May 19, 2017

    Perfect for my needs!

  • By Laura Phillips on November 9, 2013

    Absolute must for your music collection. An easy, multi-occasion collection of familiar music, set for manuals, but you can easily add pedals for extra depth as needed.

  • By AllBluesCrab on October 21, 2013

    It had what I expected it to have, have not read through the music yet, but it has all the important wedding pieces. Has only music for manuals.

  • By Juli Whitehead on June 27, 2010

    I purchased this book for a recent wedding, and it had everything I needed. The arrangements were not too difficult--great book!
