George H. Ritchie, Head of the Organ Department and Marguerite Scribante Professor of Organ, University of Nebraska, Lincoln, and George B. Stauffer, Professor of Music History and Department Chair, Hunter College and Graduate Center of CUNY.

The authors’ new approach to learning two playing techniques offers a systematic method for mastering the modern, legato technique needed for organ music composed after 1750, as well as an articulated technique for earlier works. The authors also present useful information on accompanying anthems and solos and on adapting piano and orchestral accompaniments to the organ.
