Five Spirituals for Organ
While the spirituals are well known as a vocal medium and have been internationally popularized as such, their inherent melodic beauty transfers naturally to the “King of Instruments.”
The settings of American spirituals contained in this volume were commissioned by and dedicated to Dr. Marilyn Mason, University Organist and Chairman of the Organ Department, The University of Michigan. Professor Mason commissioned and premiered over sixty works. Her extensive career as concert organist, lecturer, adjudicator, and teacher carried her throughout the Western world.

“Yours is the only organ score that is truly note-worthy; cover to cover, beautiful and authentically spiritual. Thanks.” —Mrs. J. S., Wisconsin
