Composer: Mendelssohn-Bartholdy, Felix
Sample Producer: Lavender Audio
Sample Set: Hereford Cathedral Willis Organ
Software: Hauptwerk IV
Genre: Romantic
Other than the fact that this piece was composed by Mendelssohn, transcribed by William Smallwood (1831-1897), and published by Joseph Williams, Ltd. in London as part of their "Celebrated Compositions transcribed for the Organ," there is NOTHING that I know about this piece.

I actually did fine a little info on Smallwood. He was organist of St. Thomas the Martyr, Newcastle, and IF he is the same guy, he wrote a Piano Tutor, which was very popular.

I'm playing this piece as the closer on this Wednesday's recital of "Organ Oddities" - transcriptions and "rare" pieces.

It's a rather "typical" march, and while it's not Mendelssohn at his best, it sounds good. If anyone has any info on the piece, PLEASE share!

I originally intended to do this piece on Salisbury, but my hearing was so horrific, that even stuffing tissues in my bad ear didn't help much... :-(

I switched to Hereford, and that hurt a little less, so, this is the one I went with.

This is hell, so, please keep me in your thoughts and prayers...
