Editorial Reviews

Choice
...the volume remains as friendly to the reader as ever, and Arnold has succeeded in achieving his goal of producing "an organized and comprehensive introduction" to organ literature...this edition is essential to all music libraries..
ARBA
This edition represents a major expansion and update of the previous edition. It is a valuable resource for students of the organ and professional organists alike. Aside from its value as a reference tool, this work could be used as a text for organ literature classes..
American Organist
I highly recommend acquiring the latest edition, regardless of whether you own one or both of the previous volumes..
