Please note: this edition has nothing to do with Arnold Schönberg! The "Schönberg" in question is a town near Kronberg in Germany's hilly Taunus region.

Around the turn of the last century, the organist Ludwig Sauer (1861-1940) wanted to have a new organ built at his church there and came up with a novel way to finance it: he asked a number of composers to donate a musical piece. He eventually obtained 36 (!) pieces which he grouped together in the "Organ Album for the Benefit of the New Organ in Schönberg by L. Sauer" and had published in 1900 by Breitkopf & Härtel. Deserving particular mention is Max Reger's popular "Introduction and Passacaglia in D Minor", which was printed for the first time in that collection and which no doubt helped Sauer's project make organ history. The "Schönberger Orgelalbum" contains both free pieces and works based on chorales. Thanks to the brevity of the pieces, the book is ideal for use in teaching and in the religious service.
