Quick Overview

Volume 2: Repertoire
Here is a method that will train organists properly for the traditional role of accompanying hymns and providing suitable service music. It is a comprehensive approach that introduces the techniques of organ playing step-by-step. Aimed at pianists of grade 5 standard plus, The Church Organist begins by introducing the organ – its console, manuals and stops – before exploring the pedals, good manuals and pedals technique, coordinating hands with feet, proper use of stops, the basics of improvisation and many other skills important to today’s church organist.

Christopher Tambling (1964-2015) studied the organ with Malcolm McKelvey at Christ's Hospital, Horsham, Sussex. He went on to gain organ scholarships to Canterbury Cathedral and St Peter's College, Oxford, where he studied with Geoffrey Webber and David Sanger and was Organist of Pusey House. He started his teaching career at Sedbergh School in Cumbria, where he was Organist from 1986 to 1989: he then became Director of Music at Glenalmond College, near Perth in Scotland, also taking on roles of Perth City Organist and Conductor of Perth City Orchestra.
