I have just got hold of a CD set of his complete (I think) organ music - of it's type and time some of it is rather good. Does anyone play any of it?

The third of the meditations is a beautiful and well worth a look. Some of his music is available on line from the IMSLP site.

 

Funny you should mention the third meditation - I had a quick thrash through it earlier today

Prelude Funebre is well worth investigating, and despite the title is not at all gloomy. I heard it played twice at recitals within a fairly short space of time.

I got a copy in PDF form as a free download, I can't remember the web address, just google it adding the words 'free score' and you should find it.

Try also Sortie in B flat - from IMSLP and other places too - a truncated version of the original (4 pages intead of 12ish - from the 6 Pieces) but worth a bash through.

Although I have the majority of his works, I've only ever played the Prelude Funebre, a nice piece - and also a few from the harmonium collection.

 

I've looked through a number of the others, and the Introduction and Allegro Moderato looks rather interesting too.

 

The Sibley Music Library has the full version of the Sortie.
