    Happy 100th Birthday Robert Elmore!!

    Hi All!

    I'm a bit late in the day posting this, but I wanted to bring to your attention that today is the centennial of the birth of the great American organist, composer, teacher, and church musician; Robert Elmore! (1913-1985)

    They have been posted before I think, but as my tribute I'll post my recordings of the first two movements of his Rhythmic Suite as well as some other Elmore pieces I've found on YouTube.

    Unfortunately, much of his music is no longer in print or played, but I've been working at getting his music more attention in recent months. So please take some time and listen to these pieces or if you have some of your own scores, play through them!

    Also, if there are any Elmore scores that you want send me a PM. I've managed to accumulate all but two or three (I think) of his solo organ works and have most of them scanned into PDF files. =)

    All the best,
    Jim

    Thanks! I'll hopefully be posting some more videos soon. I have a recital coming up in February so once all my rep for that is ready I'll make videos. And a few of them will be Elmore! =)
