9 editions published between 1998 and 2007 in English and held by 525 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This engaging book discusses the colorful personalities and beloved music of the French romantic organist-composers. The book offers to lovers of French music and culture - and especially to student organists - details of these composers' lives and times and of their styles and techniques. Drawing on his personal acquaintance with Messiaen, Langlais, Dupre, and other famous contemporaries, and on period documents, original accounts, early recordings, and other primary sources, Murray examines the relationship between organ building and musical composition, the nature of romanticism and classicism, and the ever-perplexing question of composer versus interpreter
Albert Schweitzer, musician by Michael Murray( Book )

11 editions published between 1993 and 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 409 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although chiefly remembered as a humanitarian and Nobel Prize winner, Albert Schweitzer was a renowned concert organist and musicologist. His writings changed the course of Bach scholarship and of organ building early in the twentieth century in Europe and North America. His musical activities, however, have been the subject of only one book in English, published in the 1950s, whose purpose was biographical rather than critical. This has resulted in mistaken assumptions about his role as a musician, not the least of which is the view of Schweitzer as founder of Baroque reform movements whose ideals in fact he deplored. Albert Schweitzer, Musician offers an account of his training - and of the masters who formed the tradition he belonged to - his writings, recitals, recordings, and friendships with other musicians. It includes previously unpublished letters, comments and advice on organ design, techniques advocated to performers, a biolgraphical sketch, and a comprehensive bibliography
