Percy W. Whitlock (1903-1946) was a member of a group of English composers who were strongly influenced by the Impressionist movement in Europe and the revival of interest in Tudor music happening concurrently in England. He was successively assistant organist at Rochester Cathedral in England,  and director of music at St. Stephen’s, Bournemouth, and organist at the Municipal Pavilion there. “Andante Tranquillo,” the third in his set of Five Short Pieces, is a short vignette, in ternary form, which successfully exploits the softer colors of the organ……Josef Rheinberger (1839-1901) was prolific in almost every field of composition, but it is for his contribution to the organ repertoire that he is now chiefly remembered. A native of Lichtenstein, he trained at the Munich Conservatory, where he later became a renowned teacher, inspiring such names as Engelbert Humperdinck (to whom he taught counterpoint and fugue), Horatio Parker (to whom he taught composition)  and the famous conductor Wilhelm Fürtwangler, who was one of his last students.   Sonata VIII in E Minor, Op.132, one of some twenty sonatas which wrote for the instrument, is perhaps the best known of all of them. "Scherzoso" is the sonata’s third movement, and it takes both the position and flavor of the traditional orchestral scherzo. Stylistically, it is unashamedly Romantic in conception, showing, on occasion, the harmonic influence of  Johannes Brahms.
