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.

"Adoro te devote" is the first piece of the "Two Communions for Organ" , the other being "Ave verum" that I posted a week or so ago. While this one is on the more "popular" melody, I don't think it measures up to "Ave." I've given it a "full romantic" treatment, but if you want to be accurate, you'd have to remember that Titcomb's organ was NOT a great one...

And, speaking of Titcomb's organ, IF you want to learn more about him, you can do so here:

On the other hand, you may feel that you already have MORE than enough info about him and not wish to read on...

It reminds me of the one greatest (or worst) true obsession of my life - Linda - my one "true" love...

I used to say to her: "Linda, there is SO much that I DON'T know about you!!!"

She'd say: "Sometimes, that's the BEST way!"

She was right...

Although I haven't gone a single day in my life without thinking of her since the last time I saw her - and that was June of 1985...

I don't think about Everett Titcomb nearly as much as I think about Linda...
