Theodore Christian Bubeck (1866-1909) was born in Stuttgart and studied there.

He moved to Moscow where he was a professor at the Moscow Conservatory and organist of The Church of the Reformation.

He composed a "Fantasy and Fugue in F-sharp minor" which is dedicated to Charles Marie Widor.

"Meditation" dates from 1904, and was originally a piano piece.

In this performance, the "arrangement" was done by the English organist Herbert F. Ellingford (1876-1966). Je was organist at St. George's Hall, Liverpool, where he succeeded A.L. Peace and, before him, the famous W.T. Best. Ellingford was world-renowned for his wide repertory and brilliant performances, particularly of the transcription repertoire. He was also a professor at Trinity College, London, and composer of a number of organ works.

This work is of the high, high romantic nature. It is more substantial and dramatic than the the title might imply. I've tried to make full use of the range of dynamics and colors available on the Salisbury Willis.

The score is attached below.

Also attached are photos of Theodore Bubeck, Herbert Ellingford, and one of The Church of the Reformation in Moscow, where Bubeck served as organist.
