Beethoven's Organ Works: A Study

Beethoven’s Organ Works: A Study, published by Wellspring Music in 2016, might be the only book that discusses Beethoven's organ music exclusively.
Its chapters give an idea of its contents:

  1. Young Organist in Bonn
  2. Organ Works of the Bonn Period (Fugue in D Major [WoO 31] and the Preludes through the Major Keys, op. 39)
  3. Works for Mechanical Organ (Fünf Stücke für die Flötenuhr [WoO 33], Grenadiers Marsch for Flötenuhr [Hess 107], Adagio for Mechanical Secretary, and Wellington's Sieg oder die Schlacht bei Vittoria [Hess 108])
  4. The Organ Trios
  5. Other Works of Questionable Authenticity (Fugue Cycle in D Minor on Themes of J.S. Bach, Fugue in C Major [Hess 64], Prelude in F Minor [WoO 55], Praeludium für Orgel, C-dur [Hess 310], and Orgel Variationen)
It also includes four appendices:
  1. Beethoven's Organs
  2. Count Joseph Deym von Střitetž
  3. Published Scores
  4. Sources of Published Scores
Written by Weldon Whipple, it is available at these locations:
