Description:
Everett Titcomb (1884-1968) spent his entire career in the greater Boston Massachusetts area. He was born in Amesbury, and studied organ and composition with Samuel Whitney, organist and choirmaster of The Church of The Advent, Boston. Titcomb’s compositional inclinations lean strongly toward the music of High Church ritualism (Anglo-Catholic), and beginning in 1910 he was able to give full vent to them. That year he was appointed to The Church of St. John the Evangelist, Beacon Hill, the
and The New England Conservatory of Music. He served St. John’s until he died in 1968.

I wanted to do something for Corpus Christi, and although this is NOT a proper melody, it IS a "Communion" piece, so, it's somewhat appropriate.

"Ave verum" is the 2nd of "Two Communions for Organ on Traditional Melodies" and was published in 1943.

It shows Titcomb in his idiom - small forms with mystical shadings... ;-)
