Alfred William Rawlings (1860-1924) was born in Marylebone, London, and died in Bronesbury, Middlesex.

Here are details of his life, courtesy of John Henderson. :-)

Alfred William Rawlings and his brother Charles Arthur Rawlings were the sons of an impoverished blind piano tuner. They became beggars and were rescued from the streets and taken into the orphanage of a Mrs. Georgina Weldon, a friend of Charles Gounod, who gave him lessons. He was a prolific composer of piano pieces and both sacred and popular songs. He used 28 different pseudonyms.

The piece comes from "The Organist" series, which was published by Lorenz from 1898-1921 .

It is the sort of thing that is really "behind the times," although you can make it sound nice if you "fill at out a bit," as I've done here.

Most of this is intended to be for manuals only, with the odd pedal note added here and there at cadences.

I did keep the middle section on the manuals only, but the Great 16' Open Diapason makes it SOUND like it's using pedals.

The score is attached below.

My thanks to Erzahler for calling this piece to my attention. :-)

THANKS, Andrew, and to John Henderson for details about the composer!
