are very multi-faceted can promote the original and art in general can benefit the instrument and the original composition can be objective, personal, or 'for profit and compositions can sometimes be hard to distinguish from one another (even by the composer himself) can include liberties in the text, orchestration, rhythm, etc. can include additions to the original can help to push the limits in organ performance (stop and manual changes, use of swell pedals, playing on two manuals with one hand, double pedal, etc)

Lemare: Pro and Contra Transcriptions


[A] noted critic stated that he had [] blessed the day when I was inspired to arrange orchestral scores for the organ, [which gave] him a great thrill. But one day being obliged to review a recital given on a comparatively small organ by an organist of ordinary attainments [], he felt like cursing the day when I made possible the playing of orchestral scores on the organ

Edwin H. Lemare, Organs I have met (Los Angeles: The Schoolcraft Company, 1956), p. 77.

[The Journalist] continues, The Ride of the Valkyries, on an organ with the necessary orchestral coloring and given the proper rendition was one thing, but that same number on an organ inadequate in every way, and played as the general run of church organists would render it, was quite another story, and I left the church with murderous thoughts on my mind []. I further contend that unless an organist has the right conception of an orchestral score, it is fatal [] for him to attempt to render orchestral scores on the organ.
