Organ Voluntaries at All Saints, 1981–1990
At the end of every program year, I made a list of music played. Here’s a .pdf document of those early years on the All Saints organ bench.voluntaries-1983–1990.pdf (27 downloads)
Music at All Saints, 1926–1931
Look what I found while packing up my office. In All Saints’ early years and up to when I started in 1983, 20-minute preludes were the norm on Sunday mornings, as well as evening recitals before Evensongs. Other Sunday activities for Pasadena folks were probably few (except for picking oranges down the street). So the church provided the entertainment, even for Vespers at the Huntington Hotel.music-all-saints-1926–1931a.pdf (24 downloads)
