Kaisen Yao Writing 1: Annotated Bibliography November 19, 2012 Grace, Harvey. "Church and Organ Music. Liszt and the Organ." The Musical Times 1 Aug. 1917: 357-62. JSTOR. Web. 9 Nov. 2012. In this 1917 article, Grace gives both a literal and musical breakdown of Liszt’s organ music. Grace primarily argues that the influence of J.S. Bach, amongst other composers, is extremely prevalent Liszt’s organ music. He shows how Liszt draws many of the same religious parallels as Bach did in his music. First, Grace argues that the majority of Liszt’s organ compositions were drawn from his duties as a Church Organist. Furthermore, Grace claims that Liszt’s admiration for the organ stems from his admiration of Bach’s organ music. He gives an example of Bach’s influence, by using Liszt’s “Variations on the Basso ostinato of Bach’s Cantata ‘Weinen, Klagen‘” . Through this example, Harvey shows the similarities drawn between Liszt’s work, and Bach’s “Crucifixus” B minor Mass. Grace’s example shows a clear parallel between Liszt’s music, Bach, and a religious motif (the Mass). Next, Grace explores the similarities between Liszt’s life and the composition of his sacred chorales. Grace shows how Liszt’s sacred chorales are influenced by two main factors: fellow Parisian composers, and his work at the Church. He draws examples from many composers, including Camille Saint-Sa ë ns, Julius Reubke, and Cesar Franck, to show how Liszt combined crucial religious elements in their works to use in his own music.
