A stunning collection of service music and helpful hints designed for one specific keyboardist: a pianist dragooned into playing that terrifying instrument known as - gasp! - an organ. Far from being a scary ordeal, however, this compilation is quite "user friendly" for that particularly brave pianist. It contains preludes, offertories & postludes that can be played comfortably by the manuals alone, as well as music with very rudimentary pedaling or easy pedals that correspond to the fifth finger of the pianist's left hand. It also provides valuable tips & exercises to ease the transition from piano to organ with special attention given to what to do with your dangling feet! It's an essential resource for the transitioning keyboardist.
