' SCHIRMER’S LIBRARY OF MUSICAL CLASSICS i Vol. 227 FELIX MENDELSSOHN-BARTHOLDY Organ Works THREE PRELUDES AND FUGUES Op. 37 SIX SONATAS Op. 65 STUDENTS’ EDITION Edited and Fingered by SAMUEL P. WARREN INC., New Yor« PREFATORY REMARKS BY THE COMPOSER. In these Sonatas much depends upon a proper selection of the organ-stops. As every organ with which I am acquainted, however, requires its own mode of treat- ment—stops of the same name in different instruments not always producing a like effect—I have indicated, in a general way, only the kind of effect required, without specifying names of stops. By fortissimo, I intend the full organ; by piantssimo, generally a soft eight-foot stop alone ; by forte, the great organ without some of the a0 loudest stops ; by piano, several soft eight- foot stops combined, and so forth. In the pedal I desire, throughout, even in pianis- simo, eight- and sixteen-foot tone together, except where the contrary is expressly stated (see the Sixth Sonata). It is, there- fore, left to the organist to make such combinations as are appropriate to the various movements, but he should take care, when employing two manuals, that they differ in tone-color, without, at the same time, standing out in too great contrast. NOTE BY THE EDITOR.—With reference to the above prefatory remarks, the editor desires to have it understood that such extra indications in registration as he has given are to be regarded simply as suggestions They are not intended in the slightest degree to forestall the general directions of the composer, but rather to aid the student in more readily carrying these out.
