Some of them are among the most beloved hymns of Christian history; hymns like "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing" appear in the hymnals of every Christian denomination. Congregational hymn singing was a revolutionary idea in England at the time. Anglican churches had marvelous choirs, but the congregations rarely sang, and then only chanted Psalms to three or four simple tunes.........
The King of Kings - Criterion Collection -- The King of Kings is the greatest story ever told as only Cecil B. DeMille could tell it, with the soundtrack for this silent epic improvised by Timothy Tikker on the 4m 1925 E. M. Skinner organ at Jefferson Avenue Presbyterian Church, Detroit. With this silent-era spectacle, Cecil B. DeMille cemented his reputation as the master of the biblical epic. DeMille tells the story of Christ's life and Passion with great attention to historical accuracy, along the way paying homage to the religious illustrations of Da Vinci and Doré, and, in a modern flourish, restaging Christ's resurrection in luminous Technicolor.

Improvising: How to Master the Art -- Gerre Hancock has long been renowned for his extraordinary improvisations, and has for many years taught the art of improvisation at classes and workshops across the United States. Now he has codified and organized his teaching into a book which carries the organist from the scale through the fugue, covering on the way interludes, hymns, hymn preludes, sonata form, canon, and more. Written in an informal style and illustrated with musical examples and exercises, this book opens wide the door to musical and technical skill.
Method of Organ Playing (8th Edition) -- Since the first appearance of Harold Gleason's Method of Organ Playing in 1937 it has been the most comprehensive and complete tool on the market for training first-class organists. The Gleason method is unique among books of its kind in that it has been in a continual state of evolution throughout its eight editions. The vast practical and pedagogical knowledge of Harold Gleason and his wife, concert organist Catharine Crozier Gleason is presented in the most up-to-date fashion in the current eighth edition. Every page of the book reflects both first-rate and recent scholarship as well as tried and true materials for beginning players.
Organists Manual: Technical Studies and Selected Compositions for the Organ -- Reviewer: (A reader)  I have studied organ at the undergraduate and graduate levels at several music universities. I hold a BS in music education and a graduate certificate in church music. The organist's manual by Davis is, in my opinion, far superior to the Gleason Method. All technical exercises and selection of repertoire is more interesting. I understand the organ much better after using the Davis book. I own all of the Gleason methods, but I find myself using and playing from the Davis book more. I congratulate Mr. Davis on this fabulous instruction manual. Will there be a second edition??? I hope so.

A fascinating book about the "Monarch of all Instruments" for students, teachers, and professional musicians. A "must-have" for the organist's library. Introduction by Rollin Smith. 5 plates of illustrations.

Each part starts with a brief description of the political and religious climate of the period and the way such factors affected the compositions and the organ-building of the time.
Louis Vierne: Organist of Notre Dame Cathedral (Complete Organ) -- Review: This is the most complete book on Vierne to date. Highly recommended. The majority of the book is Vierne's own Memoirs translated into English. The remainder consists of some analyzation of the organ works, textual corrections of the symphonies, improvisation themes written by Vierne, etc. Most complete, and a fascinating read as well as being highly useful. No organist should be without a copy!
