Emma Lou Diemer
The seven radiant organ works in this fine collection are based on hymn tunes appropriate for days of thanksgiving or national holidays. Emma Lou Diemer is a master at breathing new life into well-worn hymns. These compositions are filled with her usual harmonic and rhythmic surprises--to the delight of organists and their congregations. The settings vary in difficulty from easy to moderately difficult, and they fill a considerable void in organ literature for special observances of national importance.
