Opening and Closing Voluntaries, “Lesser Known Gems”

July 6 @ 8:00 am - 8:45 am

This workshop will provide extensive lists of lesser-known organ repertoire ideally suited for use as opening and closing voluntaries in most mainstream traditional worship settings. The selections focus on diversity and representation from all major eras of organ composition and skill level, and feature many dozens of composers both living and deceased. Include are pieces suitable for both large and small instruments, and many works are based upon chants or chorales from most major feasts and liturgical celebrations (i.e. Pentecost, Advent, etc.). A handout will provide information for obtaining the scores and the lecture will be presented with listening examples accompanied by brief biographical information on each composer.
