Bill was only five years old when he first learned to play the piano. His fascination for this introduced him to the organ, the instrument that he fell in love with. By the time he reached the end of fifth grade, he was playing for weddings, funerals, and other services on a regular basis when the organist couldn't be there. This passion became the key to achieving his dreams as a young boy, but this also introduced him to the person who made his childhood a traumatic phase in his life. The new choir director was a tall, handsome man in his mid-thirties. His body was in great shape because he had worked for the Federal Bureau of Investigation. He was the kind of man anyone would naturally admire and respect. He seemed interested in finding more about Bill, listening intently to the young boy's stories and occasionally driving him home. Bill on the other hand, started to pour his heart to him. With a terrible environment in his home, Bill was glad to finally have someone in his life who wanted to help him. He eventually labeled him as Mr. F, the "F" standing for "father substitute", or "friend". But their friendly relationship suddenly swerved when Mr. F, the mature man whom the young boy trusted, kissed him and ordered that they keep their "new relationship" between the two of them. This was only the start of the sexual relationship the young boy naively had with his choir instructor. A stirring memoir filled with insights and eye-opening facts, Organ Lessons follows Bill as he dealt with the molestation he faced in the hands of the man whom he invested friendship with. It is a shocking tale of a child who was being corrupted, without his full knowledge a tale happening somewhere in the world at this very moment.

This collection of essays, by leading scholars of the organ, follows the history of six organs in Scandinavia and Northern Germany, telling a unique story of the cultural history of northern Europe during the past four centuries. A CD with appropriate repertoire played on each of the six instruments accompanies the book.

Because it has always represented a rich collaboration of the music, art, architecture, handicraft and science of its day, the organ, more than any other instrument, continues to reflect the spirit of the age in which it was built. The Organ as a Mirror of its Time, the first book to consider this instrument's historical and cultural significance, reflects the efforts of twenty leading scholars of the organ. The book chronicles the history of six organs in Scandinavia and Northern Germany, at least one specimen for every century from 1600 to the present. By considering their original contexts and their histories since they were built, as well as the extraordinary coincidences that link them together, the book offers a unique perspective on the cultural history of northern Europe. A CD with appropriate repertoire played on each of the six instruments accompanies the book.

In this charming autobiographical essay, Albert Schwenzer tells of his first nineteen years in Upper Alsace and his youthful discoveries of religion, music, and the inspiration of friendship. Even in his boyhood there were traces of what was to become his "reverence for life": as a boy, he writes, he managed to dissuade several companions from going fishing because of the pain he felt the deed gave to both the worm and the fish. In poignant vignettes, Schweitzer also describes his unhappiness at discovering that he had better food or better clothing than chose around him. Memoirs of Childhood and Youth offers wonderful insights on Dr. Schweitzer's childhood journey that eventually led him to dedicate himself to medical service in African colonies. This new translation also has rarely seen photographs of Schweitzer, both as a youth and as an adult.
