The Fagus Collection of Edwardian Preludes

The Fagus Collection of Edwardian Preludes

Thirteen Pieces for Organ by Walter Alcock, Myles B. Foster, Alfred Hollins, John E. West and William Wolstenholme.

The 'Edwardian' in the title of this collection needs to be taken as a broad indication of the style of these little pieces, it is not chronologically precise. In this period a huge amount of music for church service use was published, and of this a very large proportion was extraordinarily uninteresting, worthy doubtless, but fatally dull.

However, a detailed examination of some of the contemporary publications does unearth a few pieces of substance, charm and, sometimes, eloquence; it is suggested that they might well find a use even today.
