=====Music Notes===
Ernest Bloch was a Swiss-born American composer of Orchestral, choral, chamber, and instrumental works.  The first of “Six Preludes for Organ” was composed in 1949 and appears on the album “Organ Music from Israel.” 

Flor Peeters, a Belgian composer, organist, and teacher composed his Miniatures in 1955.  The Lydian Mode has the 4th note of the scale a half step higher than expected.   

Johann Pachelbel was a German Baroque composer, organist, and teacher who brought the South German organ tradition to its peak.  He uses the first phrase of the hymn as his fugue subject. 

Charles Gounod of Paris was a major classical composer of the 19th Century.  His output included 13 operas, and a large body of instrumental, orchestral, sacred and ballet works.
