dc.description.abstract This dissertation has taken the form of a creative project, as is permitted by the guidelines for the Doctor of Arts curriculum. The purpose of the project was to assemble and edit for the beginning organist a body of musical literature useful to that important, Initial step in learning which combines Manual and Pedal activity. The thirty-eight selections which comprise the collection are compositions which have never before been used in pedagogical compilations and are arranged: in an order of progressively ascending technical difficulty.Criteria other than appropriateness to the acquisition of needed rudimentary skills influenced the selection of musical works included in this collection. Important schools of organ composition, ranging from the thirteenth to the nineteenth century and stemming from England, France, Germany, Italy, Poland, and Spain, are to be found in this project: and. the most significant styles of composition, chant-based, chorale-based, fugal, free, homophonic, trio, and dance, are also adequately represented.Each composition has been notated on a standard, three-staff, organ score to which Manual indications, pedalling symbols, and limited fingering assists have been added, in addition, each musical work carries with it a title page bearing not only the composer's complete name and dates but also suggestions for appropriate registration and a brief paragraph of pertinently related stylistic, biographical„ or technical comments.Research which influenced the choice, transcription, and edition of each composition is recorded in this dissertation as is also a chapter of indexes locating the selections from the standpoints of technical difficulty, compositional period and region, and compositional style.Organ Music For the Beginner should serve adequately both as a supplemental. volume to any existing organ course and as a primary study guide for any beginning organ student. en_US
