Edward MacDowell was an American composer, who wrote beautifully evocative music in the early stages of impressionism. He was best known for his piano music, especially his Woodland Sketches, Op. 51, from which I am playing two works on organ today: “At an Old Trysting Place” and “To a Wild Rose”. Both of these works were composed around 1896, and were been transcribed by Charles P. Scott for organ.
“At an Old Trysting Place” is quite short, and has a beautiful nostalgic quality; almost hymn-like in character.
