    While organ music of the 19th century was not highly regarded in Germany a few years ago (with the exception of a few outstanding works), our understanding of it has grown during recent years. in other countries 19th century organ music has retained its place in the repertoire to a far greater extent. This three-volume collection presents playable organ works of high quality for both liturgical and concert use. Most of the pieces have not yet been available in new editions (at the time of publication), and are made accessible to a wider public for the first time. The first two volumes contain pieces which were composed in, or introduced to, the German-speaking area of Europe between 1800 and 1900; some of them point back stylistically to the 18th century. The focus of the third volume is on works by French, British, and American composers. There are also organ pieces from Bohemia, Belgium, Denmark, and even Brazil.
