This collection of Psalm Interpretations for Organ features eight original compositions that reflect the spirit of verses from selected psalms. It is suggested that the psalm verses associated with each setting be included in the congregational leaflet or printed recital program. For variety, the entire psalm could be read before the playing of the musical setting. These settings were suggested by and written for Dr. Joan DeVee Dixon, Professor of Music at Frostburg State University in Frostburg, Maryland. Dr. Dixon also serves as organist and director of music at the historic Emmanuel Parish in Cumberland, Maryland. The work was commissioned by Dr. Alvin C Broyles, retired senior research associate of Exxon Production Research Company. His is a dedicated supporter of the arts and a lifetime member of the Board of Trustees of the University of the Ozarks in Clarksville, Arkansas.
