Albert Lister Peace was born in Huddersfield, England January 26th, 1844. As a precocious pupil of Henry Horn and H. Parratt he was found to be a fine organist, and at just nine years of age he became organist of Holmfirth Parish Church. In 1865 he was appointed organist of Trinity Congregational Church in Glasgow. In 1870 Peace received a bachelors degree in Music from the University of Glasgow, and received his Doctorate in 1875.

In 1873 he was appointed organist of Glasgow Cathedral, and in 1897 he succeeded W. T. Best as organist of St. George’s Hall, Liverpool, the highest position in the kingdom. He died March 14th 1912 in Liverpool. His main works include, "Psalm 138," for choir and orchestra; the cantata "St. John the Baptist;" church-services; anthems; and organ-music, including 3 Sonatas. These along with the "Concert-fantasia on Scotch melodies;" and the "Fantasia in B-flat," are amongst his most significant works.

"Andante No. 2" was published by the J. B. Millett Company in 1896, which "feels" like the right time for the piece. It has a slightly dark tone to it, and the outer sections in G minor, move along nicely. The contrasting central section is in E-flat and is a perfect "balance" to the framing parts. There is a feel of "chamber music" about this, and it isn't a "lumpy church piece" sort of thing.

Now, if you're thinking, well, OK, but WHERE is the "Andante No. 1"?

Here it is:

"Andante No. 1"

And a rousing march in D minor as well:

"Allegro alla Marcia (Concluding Voluntary)"

Three photos of Albert Lister Peace is attached below, as is the score.

I may take a look at some of the bigger Peace pieces, so, be on the watch for more "unknown and long-forgotten" music to appear at any time!

Peace to All! ;-)
