This item is no longer our publication
The combination of music by respected composer John Leavitt and poetry by Robert Louis Stevenson creates a spectacular publication which organists will love to see. This piece was commissioned by the Wichita, Kansas chapter of the American Guild of Organists and has already proven successful in concerts. The poetry is taken from Stevenson's 'A Child's Garden of Verses' and original music relating to each poem demonstrates the various families of sound on the organ. It's like Peter and the Wolf for organ!
