History of the Scottish Federation of Organists
Over a year of research and compilation has resulted in this remarkable history of the Scottish Federation of Organists. Founded in 1956 the SFO and the affiliated local organists’ societies remain the only charitable bodies to encourage and represent the organists of Scotland no matter where in the country they work and no matter whether they play in one of the major city cathedrals or in one of the hundreds of small rural churches.

"It presents a vast amount of data in compressed form about every instrument known to have been installed in the city.....it should see service on the desks and in the briefcases of organ sleuths"
(British Institute of Organ Studies Journal, Volume 15, 1991)
"These 56 pages are packed with well-presented and easy-to-find information, with especially useful notes on Edinburgh organ builders"
(Musical Opinion, May 1991)
