"In this book, Barbara Owen has created a rich resource of historical information coupled with strategies for interpreting that information on today's instruments." oJournal of the American Musical Instrument Society "... Barbara Owen has succeeded admirably in distilling three centuries of organ registration practice into a volume less than three hundred pages long... Anyone with an interest in the history of the organ and its music ... will not want to ignore this book." oSixteenth Century Journal "It is rare to find a book that combines such careful scholarship with a practical focus that makes it accessible to performing musicians as well as research specialists." oNotes "An excellent volume from historical, musical style and interpretive standpoints. Highly recommended for all large academic and professional music collections." Choice " ... recommend this book to all serious organists." oThe American Organist Magazine
