Scherzo For Organ was first published in 1917. It is dedicated to John Connell, a South African organist and Organ builder, with whom the composer became great friends when he travelled to Cape Town and Johannesburg.
Alfred Hollins (1865-1942) was an inspirational British organist, composer and teacher. Blind from birth, he travelled all over the UK and the British Empire, giving concerts and designing Organs. He eventually settled in Scotland, where he was an organist in Edinburgh for over forty years.
