San Francisco American Guild of Organists Centennial Prayer:O, God, in whom angels and saints delight and to whom we join them in singing to you an endless hymn of praise, we gather to celebrate and thank you for your many blessings. Source of all that is good, true and beautiful keep constant in this musician the conviction that your spirit works through me to reach vast and countless numbers of souls who gather in sacred spaces for hope, assurance, grace and beauty, for some sign of your care, for solace from grief and loss, for strength to stand for justice, for a glimpse of wonder and mystery, for response to a need so hidden that it is known but to you alone. Assure me that the hours of practice, the rehearsals, the anthems, psalms and performances that are given again and again for the vessel of your spirit to heal the bruised, the lost, the broken and setting free the holy aspirations of the human heart. Souls that are saved by ministries of music are often too frightened to offer thanks in person-may their unarticulated gratitude be gathered by the winds of your spirit and be borne to the hearts of your musicians as a gift to renew their faith so that they may continue to be instruments of proclamation. May your blessings be upon me and may you continue to bless me in the days, weeks, and years ahead. All Glory be to you O, God, to whom we sing and play endless praise for ever and ever. Amen

When I was growing up in Mobile Alabama, the gentleman that lived behind our house, would always tell me stories of how when he was a young man he took a boat trip to Paris and met a young lady named Collette that he fell in love with. She did not fall in love with him. She was the only love of his life, but they never got together. Collette ended up marrying E Power Biggs, and they ended up getting a divorce. I am curious if anyone has information about E. Power Biggs wife named Collette. The gentleman that was in love with her was named Julian Sossaman.

Thank You for the Music

Unlike anon, I much prefer your BWV 565 to Virgil's. I've been listening to it for so long (over 50 years) I now sing-along and air conduct it. Love how you give the Flentrop time to resonate before going to the next phrase. You are a prime example of "they the mold when..". RIP maestro.

Mr Biggs and Peggy: thank you for your kindness to an unknown fan whom you took into your home, gave copies of priceless out of print recordings, and even a personal tour of your magnificent Flentrop. Surely you both are playing in the heavens along with the Great Organist.

Dear Biggsie, Thirty years ago, in September of 1976, when I was 15, my local record store owner, herself a trained musician, told me that if I bought your recordings, I would be convinced for life. Up to that time I had very little exposure to organ music and what little I had I didn't like- the windy, stuttering sounds, or conversely, the dark boomy noises. But trusting her expertise I decided to purchase your 3-record set of "Bach Organ Favorites" (Columbia D3M 33724). And sure enough I was convinced and have been ever since! Your organ performances are something I had never heard before: clear, crisp, and articulate with a wonderful sense of ongoing rhythm. And your musical philosophy that makes such excellence possible, your modern revival of organs with "tracker-action, sliding key-channel windchest, free-standing open pipes with clear pipe-speech articulation" certainly has convinced the world. Since that time I have purchased many of your lps, cassettes, and cds (including your pedal harpsichord albums) and I think that just about every day includes a listening session of at least one of your pieces. And you may take joy in the fact that your recordings, so many of which are considered definitive, more and more are being remastered and finding their way on cd, and that your older lps, cassettes, 8-tracks, and reel-to-reels enjoy brisk sales on the used market, especially in this, your one-hundreth birthday year and your 69th year of exclusively American citizenship. And that 3-record set purchased so long ago? I can say with a warm feeling of satisfaction that I still have it, in near-mint condition, and combined with the fact that when I purchased it you were still with us is for me a source of inestimable pride.*** I picture you at leisure in the lush, green, and cool fields and gardens of Elysium where peace and freedom reign supreme, enjoying the delicious fruits of the rest and refreshment you so righteously deserve. Thank you for continuing to bring joy and beauty and inspiration to my daily life. Thank you Edward, for everything. Ever your friend for life.

Well Biggsy.... When I lived in Boston during the early 1980's to early 90's I visited your grave site. As Mom was one of your students during the 1930's she learned a great deal. I understand your second wife couldn't stand my mother..... well so it goes..... you're both gone now. Interesting to think what music is to be made with the both of you. BTW, my sister for some reason always thought you were rather "effeminate" when she met you in the ealy 1960's after your concert at Carnegie Hall...... Hummmmm.
