Out of a lifetime's experience of playing church organs, Dr. Conway speaks in this book to all, from the youngest novice to the experienced expert - about his job. It is the perfect handbook for the organist at whatever level of achievement - authoritative, comprehensive and simple. Everything is here, from the story of the origin of the organ to the best of the latest voluntaries. Not least of the merits of this work is that it will save the aspiring organist much unnecessary expenditure on music that is less than the best. For in the appendices will found suggested anthems and voluntaries for every Sunday of the church year, with helpful remarks and all the necessary information, such as compose, publisher, grade, etc. It is the book that the novice can read and appreciate and the expert will read with profit. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive.
