by Dudley Buck
The techniques of choir accompaniment as described by Dudley Buck (1839-1909) in this facsimile originally published in 1877 are generally useful today and provide a clear glimpse into American organ performance style, registration, and transcribing in the latter 19th century. Accompaniment is discussed in the context of registration, chorales, plainsong and chant, quartet choirs, giving the tune, solo voices, obligato and solo organ stops, adaptation of piano and orchestral scores to the organ, the Swell, interludes, staccato touch, thorough bass, and accompaniment with orchestra. 184 pp., 177 musical examples, softbound.
