"One of Victorian America's most beloved and respected composers, Dudley Buck (1839-1909) played a crucial role in the coming of age of American music following the Civil War. This volume of his most popular organ works is the first scholarly edition of these pieces. A conductor, organist, and teacher, Buck was the first American to write professional, accessible, and popular organ music, as well as a wealth of choral music, including anthems, cantatas, and partsongs. Orr's careful, authoritative edition presents Buck's two organ sonatas and four concert variations, introduced by an informative essay on Buck's life and the development of American organs and organ music." --

"Dudley Buck (1839-1909) ... was arguably the finest composer of choral music among the group of musicians who had come of age by the end of the Civil War. The works chosen for this volume, some of which became icons of American Victorian culture, represent the three most popular choral genres during the Gilded Age: the anthem, the partsong, and the sacred and secular cantata. All of the works included here found immediate publication and stayed in print well into the twentieth century. Buck's works became the standards, not only by their intrinsic merit, but owing to their widespread performance throughout the country. His services, canticles, anthems, and hymns--musically engaging, well-crafted, and often genuinely moving--were considerably more professional than the home-grown music in use when he began his work. Included here are three of these works, a hymn anthem ("Rock of Ages," op. 65, no. 3), a liturgical text (Festival Te Deum in E-flat Major, op. 63, no. 1), and a late, through-composed work (Grant to Us Thy Grace). Buck's partsongs along with his sacred and secular cantatas also enjoyed widespread success among the growing number of church choirs and community choral groups. The two partsongs included here come from his earliest and latest periods. "In Absence" represents the early Victorian partsong, and "The Signal Resounds from Afar" is both Buck's longest partsong and the one showing the greatest contrapuntal complexity. Finally, The Forty-sixth Psalm, op. 57, from 1872, and The Centennial Meditation of Columbia, written for the 1876 Centennial Exhibition in Philadelphia, are both large-scale works for voices and full orchestra, typifying some of the finest cantata writing in Victorian America." --
