Editor Herbert Frederick Ellingford (1876-1966)
Publisher. Info. London: Oxford University Press, 1932.
Misc. Notes From the uploader's library. An excellent first English edition published in the "famous" Oxford Organ Music "series in the black and white covers" with a short but pertinent introduction by Herbert F. Ellingford who repeats the advice given in the first edition but adding sensible interpretive hints on matters of registration, sequential fingerings, alternative settings, breathing spaces, proposed respectful cuts, more in accord with a "proper" organ style. [Note: The editor's dates may be meaningful in not adding the whole score, not to mention his liminal notes].

Influenced heavily by the b minor sonata of his composition teacher, Liszt, Reubke wrote this piece as a sort of tone-poem for organ. The pertinent verses of the 94th psalm are on the discussion page.
