Wedding Service Music for Organ
Ed. David Drinkwater
Organ - Method or Collection
Comb Bound Book
All weddings that require the services of a church organist are, or should be, religious as well as social occasions. This fact must be kept in mind as the organist and participants select music that is acceptable from a religious as well as aesthetic point of view. In light of this, the selections in WEDDING SERVICE MUSIC FOR ORGAN were chosen to meet these requirements. It is the intention of the author that these selections impress listeners as expressions of joy as well as of religious solemnity. The comb binding creates a lay-flat book that is perfect for study and performance.
