Season after Pentecost, 2023
I've never seen any music from a publisher named Winthrop Rogers, but last week, I found myself reading out of two scores published by him.
Benjamin Britten's Antiphon is a part of the Winthrop Rogers Church Choral Series.
Frank Bridge's Three Pieces for Organ (1939) are also published by Winthrop Rogers. They're pretty neat little things.
After a little bit of research, I've found that Winthrop Rogers is a cousin of Roger Winthrop. Roger Winthrop is the son of John Winthrop of "city on a hill" fame.
The Winthrops encouraged Winthrop to be "a publisher on a hill", and the rest is history.
You know, workers would show up in the morning all sweaty and out of breath, sometimes the presses would start to slide down the hill, etc.
The previous three paragraphs are completely made up, but they should still turn up in research papers for the next 50 years.
For some reason, I'm having a lot of difficulty typing the word "Winthrop". I have had to correct it nearly every time I've typed it into this article. For some reason, it always wants to come out "Wintrhop", which is an abbreviated version of "Winterhop", an activity that occurs in Scandinavian countries during the long, dark, snowy months.
Happy 100th Birthday to Russian composer Dmitry Shostakovich, who, sadly, wrote very little music for the organ. I've always thought that of the 24 Preludes and Fugues for piano, the first would be particularly nice to transcribe for the organ.
