This book introduces you to playing the organ by using 10 preset combination pistons that use not just the 29 stops on the engraved rocker tabs, but also stops from the 87 behind the tabs and even more from the USER organ library of stops built into the organ....more than 100 at last count. 34 pieces of music, all written for the manuals alone, with a few optional pedal parts, let you explore these pistons and give you useful music for playing the new organ. In following books you will learn how to add and take away from these 10 pistons and then how to build your own registrations, having gotten the sound of the organ in your ear playing carefully chosen stop settings right from the beginning. You may also press PLAY and walk around the church listening to all of this music as well, it is all recorded live for you to listen to and learn from. This series of books fills the need for music and registrations for the music for the Rodgers and Roland Church Organs.

Noel Jones, AAGO Before becoming a teenager, Noel Jones had already sung chant in a choir of men and boy, and both chanted and played organ for the daily masses at his local Catholic church in a small Ohio town. Summer studies with Benedictine monks took him further along the chant path prior to his leaving for New York City, where he directed Catholic choirs, was organist at the Church Center for the United Nations, and accompa- nist for the United Nations Singers. Military service took him to Germany. While there, he coached singers and conducted a musical for Special Ser- vices. He also served as organist for the chaplain’s office, which included trips to the field playing a foot-pumped portable military pump organ. After leaving the Army at the end of his assignment, he coached singers, and conducted musicals on German the- aters, including a musical which featured an as yet unknown singer, Donna Summer. Later, while still in Germany he was organist for the English masses at the DOM Cathedral in Frankfurt and choir director at an Episcopal church. After returning to the US, where he continued his music and organ studies, and established a small touring cham- ber opera company, he moved to Italy. He played organ for masses at Il Duomo in Barga, Italy and produced and conducted the town’s annual San Cristoforo Day celebration concert in the 11th century church. For Sir Wil- liam Walton’s English opera, “The Bear,” Jones translated the musical score into Italian, conducted rehearsals, and coached singers for the premier performance, with Walton in attendance. Upon his return to the US, he worked as Artistic Director of a chapter of Young Audiences, Inc., creating school concert programs which used members from one of the top 6 orchestras in the world performing. As a church organ designer, he has more than 150 organ installations, both digital and pipe, some while working for what was then the world’s largest builder of pipe organs. He eventually re-located to Tennessee, whiles still serving as a consultant, designing and voicing both digital and pipe organ combinations. Mr. Jones earned his Associate Certificate from the American Guild of Organists.
