I'm an organist, probably a lot like you. I have the typical church organist interests - wanting to know more and more about organ registrations, music for the organ, how to use MIDI, what used organs are selling for, interested in being able to read Gregorian Chant square notes, wanting to be in touch with other organists around the world for their ideas and opinions - so we created Frog Music Press. noel jones, sago
Roland & Rodgers Church Organ Books and Music:
• Playing the Church Organ™ series
A word of caution: This may appear to be a set of books with easy organ music, over 100 pieces for manuals with a few very optional pedal parts. They are obviously written for certain Roland & Rodgers organs, as you will read just below. Often people who look at them judge them by the difficulty of the music they see. That's where caution comes in. The music is just a tool - just as bread serves as the top and bottom of a sandwich. The filling is what matters.
Here the filling is the registration ideas as we progress through books 1, 2, 3 & 4. Almost all Rodgers organs have many of the stops that you will find and use in books 1, 2 and even book 3. Few will have the stops in book 4, but you will find the music useful. If you want to learn more about organ registration, that's what these books are all about, organ registrations and music that calls out for them.
Here's the official explanation for those with the newer organs:
