Notes and Editorial Reviews

In the decades just before and after 1900 many composers were attracted to the sonorous possibilities of violin and organ in ensemble. Air and Romances draws primarily from the substantial repertory of expressive and tuneful compositions by composers who were greatly admired in their own time. Many were violinists of renown who were also successful composers, conductors, and composition professors at prestigious conservatories. Organists then and now have also written for this combination of instruments which has renewed popularity because of the performances and extensive research by Robert Murray and Ardyth Lohuis.
