The Organist's Companion™ is a bimonthly, 32-page journal of quality organ music, chosen from all the major historical periods, nationalities, and styles of organ music. Approximately one-third of each issue is music from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries (Baroque Era) and one-third from the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries (Romantic Era). The final third consists of pieces composed specifically for this journal. Some compositions are for manuals alone; others are for manuals and easy pedal, on two or three staves. The music in each issue is chosen to be appropriate for the season of the year of that particular issue. Many compositions are based on seasonal hymn tunes.
