Along with being a performance manual for organists, this volume is also a tribute to a unique personality whose playing and creative activity are legendary. Steed, who was famous for his skilled and musicianly advocacy of Dupre's compositions, brings a keen and discriminating intelligence to his analyses and provides practical hints that can come only from someone who has learned all the notes and is thus free to turn to the core of the music. He also tells stories and anecdotes that illuminate the personalities of both the composer and himself. The book contains seven b&w photographs of Dupre at work, with his organs, with Jascha Heifetz, and with Madame Dupre.
