About this blogger:
Father Gabriel Lalemant won the crown the martyrdom on 17 March 1649. The smallest and most delicate in health among all the Jesuit missionaries, he had in six months won, by his iron will and unwavering determination, a martyr's end, in companionship with the spiritual and physical giant of the missions, Jean de Brébeuf.

Two pages of modal exercises reflect Liszt’s lively theoretical curiosity. On those pages he analysed the construction, transpositions, and “points of repose” of several modes, copied out several types of tetrachords, and jotted down several definitions of the effects and characters of certain modes. {…} Modality was not the only element of Gregorian chant that intrigued Liszt. Rhythm too was the object of his “studies.” He also copied out plainchant melodies using modern instead of square notation. In his letter from July 24, 1860, to Carolyne, Liszt refers to the necessity of this “modern” practice.

100 Easy, Beautiful Organ Interludes (Manuals Only)
published 10 June 2013 by Corpus Christi Watershed

OM GREGORY MURRAY composed 100 Interludes for Organ. These are simple pieces that don’t require the pedal. That is, they are “manuals only” organ pieces.

Click the image on the right to get an idea what these pieces are like.

Many of these pieces were composed and printed in the 1930s. Watershed is exploring the possibility of publishing them again for free (since many are public domain). However, until this becomes a reality, you can purchase these lovely, easy organ scores here:
