FredM, perhaps unknowingly, started me down this rabbit hole: he recently performed “Meditation” which I found enchanting

Agnus_Dei for several fine performances of works by Haynes, but also for continued inspiration and constantly reminding us that there are musical treasures around every corner!

grahamstwist for encouragement, and assisting by providing
some of the wonderful background material attached.

The following CB users have also uploaded recordings of Haynes: unclegally, palsorgel, Erzahler, takatsa, Tungsan; with gratitude to all of you.

I have started a playlist of Haynes works. Let’s all keep adding!

Walter Battison Haynes (21 November 1859 – 16 February 1900) was an English pianist, organist and composer. Although he died at a young age, his influence on the development of the English Victorian organ style was significant. He made the pilgrimage to Leipzig and on his return became a Professor of Harmony and Composition at the Royal Academy of Music. He was highly sought after as a teacher, and two of his
best known students were Charles Macpherson and Harry Farjeon.

His Organ Sonata, Op. 11, is sweeping in scope, consisting of 4 movements which highlight his compositional skill, and any organ on which they are played! I chose to play this work on the Lavender Audio Sampleset of the Armley Schulze: it seemed fitting to play a work written in Germany by an Englishman, on a German organ in England!
This sonata is not widely known, so I hope you will enjoy this: if you are an organ student, perhpas you will add it to your repertoire. Haynes definitely deserves to be heard by our modern audiences!
