In 1863, the Imperial School for Blind Youth in Paris, France published a collection of original music scores: Recueil de Morceaux d'Orgue. All were written by organists who were blind or visually impaired, many employed by prominent churches in Paris to perform at their services. The book was unusual also for its format: it was embossed in the raised dot code invented by Louis Braille at the school in 1829. the collection was not widely published, and never appeared in print. In 2008, Harvey Miller, a retired professor from Brevard College who is blind himself, began a project to transcribe the works from a copy held by the Museum of the American Printing House for the Blind. This special Louisville performance by members of the Louisville chapter of the American Guild of Organists will premier a number of original works for possibly the first time outside nineteenth century Paris. Best for adults and children 12 and up. Please call 899-2213 or send email to email@example.com by February 1 to make reservations.
