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.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
