Composer: Grey, Charles John

Software: Hauptwerk IV
Genre: Romantic
Charles Grey (1849-1923) was born in Norfolk, England. His father was also an organist.

He taught at the London College of Music, and published quite a number of compositions, most of which, not all, are of a light nature.

This probably isn't a piece to play for your degree recital, but if you feel like staying in the mood of my "Summertime Dreams Series," this may be just the thing for you!

Actually, it's a nice piece, and reminds me a lot of Paul Wach's "Hosanna," a piece that I believe EdoL and I are both guilty of playing! ;-)

It works nicely on the Armley Schulze, and the colors give a nice "old-fashioned" sound.

I've followed Grey's registrations, generally speaking, but I have elaborated the scheme a bit in the third and fourth sections.

"Hymne Céleste" was originally published in 1895, and was then included by Schott in their "Red Album of 20 Pieces for the Organ," published in 1905.

Schott had an entire "color series," with each volume being known by the color of the cover. In each volume are original pieces and transcriptions, some of which are quite good, and range from easy to very difficult.

The score is attached below, as well as a photo of Charles John Grey.
