New Organ Music for Lent/Easter

If you missed our recent Organ Music Clinic, you can still check out these new titles recommended by Stanton’s keyboard staff:

Lenten Reflections
Composer Dr. Ashdown’s newest volume for organ includes free-compositions as well as hymn-based settings on well-known hymns for Ash Wednesday, Lent, and beyond. The variety contained in this collection will aid organists in selecting appropriate music for the season. This also includes a lovely setting of “Beautiful Savior”! These are wonderful, contemplative settings for the Lenten season.

Sacrifice and Splendor
Mary McDonald has done it again! This three-part suite is designed for a joyful Easter Sunday celebration, beginning with the fanfare-like prelude “Christ Is Alive,” followed by a meditative offertory medley reflecting on the cross, and concluding with a classical-style arrangement of “Jesus Christ is Risen Today.” Enjoy a service full of new arrangements with this memorable “Sunday Suite.”

Loving Spirit
David Maxwell of Portland, Maine, is warmly welcomed to the AFP organ catalog. Of moderate-level difficulty, the collection includes settings of tunes for Lent, Easter, and general Sundays with fresh imagery, perfect for worship voluntaries.
