These trios for organ are wonderfully versatile: they can be used as teaching pieces as well as works for the worship service or for concert. Mr. Martinson has stated in his preface that he conceived these short works as a 20th century equivalent of the “Ten Trios” of Josef Rheinberger. The pedal parts are graded in difficulty and can be extracted as pedal exercises. The pieces can be used as exercises in touch and registration on the mechanical action organ. The trios are remarkably varied in their melodic and rhythmic invention and use the full range of color on the organ. Great repertoire for organ students and concert organists.
