  • (free PDF) THE ART OF TRANSCRIBING FOR THE ORGAN, by Herbert Ellingford (1876-1966) This venerable book is subtitled “A complete Textbook for the Organist in Arranging Choral and Instrumental Music,” and it really delivers on this. My restoration is of the original publication, complete with every musical example cleaned and restored for viewing on portable reading devices.
