    Another great find in an unknown composer (at least to me anyway).

    Always on the hunt for lesser known composers for organ which I like to use for service music at church. One of our choir members is the former professor of organ at Valparaiso University (Indiana, US) and delights in hearing all these unknown (to him also) organ composers.

    I shall widen my search! There are some Cernohorsky scores at IMSLP.

    http://imslp.org/wiki/Category:%C4%8...lav_Mat%C4%9Bj

    Digressing from Cernohorsky, I also found some sonatas for 2 recorders or violins by William Croft (possibly not so obscure) which I think would make a good base for organ pieces or improvs.

    http://imslp.org/wiki/6_Sonatas_of_T...ft,_William%29

    Also on IMSLP solos for flute and continuo by John Stanley, however these are written with figured continuo so may be a bit more of a challenge,

    http://imslp.org/wiki/Category:Stanley,_John

    the above link also has all 30 of Stanley's voluntaries and the opus 2 and opus 10 concertos.
    Cheers MIKE.

    Ooohhh ... this is like being a child in a candy store ... ... I love finding different works for organ. Have already 2.5 Gb of PDF'd organ scores in my virtual library sorted by composer, and looking to add more.

    The invoice is in the post.

    Lars, as a matter of interest, are works like the William Croft sonatas linked above usable? Would you tend to use them more or less as written or would you add, say, a pedal continuo, or would you use them as a base for improv. Would be interested to hear any recordings of results -hint hint!

    If/when I get this house sold and move out I'll have some time to open Finalé and Grand Orgue and see what I can manage. I did try a couple of the Stanley ones a while back but was not happy with interpreting the figured bass - plus I configured GO as flute and harpsichord, the only two I could find on You tube were played on traverso flute(?) and theorbo.
    Cheers MIKE.

    They are usable ... I would most likely transpose the treble 2 recorder down one octave and play on a 4' stop (for ease of fingering) and play it on a 2nd manual. It also might work being played with an 8' in the same manner, physically playing it down one octave.

    I am used to being 'adaptable' when it comes to scoring for the organ from other instruments (piano, recorder, etc). Where I draw the line is with transposing instruments - I have never been able to play the Alto Clef in organ literature.

    As to the "hint hint", I know what that means ... and I will make it a point to start working on that endeavour.

    A few more on the same CD as the Cernohorsky (free download), followed by IMSLP links for the composers, quite a few works by J D Zelenka, some choral some instrumental, various instrumentations and some arrangements. (a few with MIDI synthesized files to listen to) Some scores however are images of the original handwritten pages.

    Bumping this old thread, I note I mentioned Jan Zach in IMSLP in the above post, herewith a sample on the Baroque Music Library listen or download (right click on the sound track and select "save file as"). How would you describe it, my thoughts "Majestic"

    http://www.baroquemusic.org/DLower/B...hPrelFugue.mp3

    From the same CD a splendid Amen, OK I know it's a choral work but I think it's worth a listen.

    Cheers MIKE.
