by Johns, Kristen Michele, D.M.A., University of Cincinnati, 2006, 63; 10857219
Abstract (Summary)

The repertoire for horn and organ presents certain performance issues that are significant in that they must be resolved each time a new pipe organ, performance space, or composition is encountered. These performance issues are unique to this medium and are presented and discussed in this paper. Issues include parameters associated with 1) the performance space, 2) the tuning system or temperament of the pipe organ, and 3) ensemble issues. A discussion of the selected solutions to the problems associated with specific performance conditions and a performer's guide to this repertoire complete the paper.
