Janet Correll (b. 1942) — Rose Carol and Variations (1985) for organ

Janet Correll was born September 2, 1942 in East St. Louis, Illinois. She holds music degrees from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Correll is a former professor of music (Cayuga Community College in Auburn, New York) and served as teacher and organist in Illinois, Indiana, Texas, and New York State. She continues to compose and play organ and harp in her home of Chicago, Illinois. Correll’s organ music is published by Wayne Leupold Editions and her harp music by Lyon & Healy.

“Rose Carol with Variations” was written in December of 1985. The composer was inspired by the 16th century melody “Est ist ein Ros” (“Lo, How a Rose E’re Blooming”), and composed a new tune for the same text, with a medieval flavor. The theme is followed by five variations.
