American organist and composer Eugene Thayer (1838-1889) inaugurated in 1874 a quarterly newspaper designed specifically and exclusively for organists – the first such publication in America and thus the forerunner to such periodicals as The Diapason, The American Organist, and The Tracker. Each issue contains commentary, reports and stoplists of specific organs in the U. S. and abroad, historical accounts of organ culture, articles by Thayer and others, and 62 compositions for the organ by Thayer (28 pieces), Liszt, Rossini, Chadwick, Merkel, Guilmant, Lemmens, Hesse, Battmann, and many others. In 1877, Thayer published all of the issues as a set containing 242 pages, and a facsimile of that is what the Organ Historical Society has published anew, as a hardbound book with a very informative biographical and musicological, annotated, introduction by OHS member Allison Alcorn-Oppedahl as well as a list of Thayer’s musical compositions, publications, and places of employment and education.
