Volume I of this new edition is a basic textbook on the development of pipe organ composition in geographically diverse schools. Its nineteen chapters include charts of organ composers and a historical background of contemporary events and figures for each organ composition school. Chapter bibliographies are completely updated with corollary readings that have appeared since 1973. A listing of Bach organ compositions with pagination of various editions is also included.
Volume II has been substantially revised and enlarged and gives biographical sketches of organ composers and an alphabetical list of each composer's works (including pagination in the major organ music anthologies), publisher, catalog number, and copyright date. A directory of organ music publishers is also provided. The combined set is an indispensable resource for organists, organ teachers, and music scholars everywhere.

I highly recommend acquiring the latest edition, regardless of whether you own one or both of the previous volumes. (The American Organist)
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. (Arba)
