Charles Rudolf Friml (December 7, 1879 – November 12, 1972) was a Czech-born composer of operettas, musicals, songs and piano pieces, as well as a pianist. After musical training and a brief performing career in his native Prague, Friml moved to the United States, where he became a composer. His best-known works are Rose-Marie and The Vagabond King, each of which enjoyed success on Broadway and in London and were adapted for film.

"Moonlight on the Lagoon" was published by G. Schirmer in 1921 as a duet for violin and piano, and the organ version, arranged by Edwin Shippen Barnes was also published by them in the same year.

Edward Shippen Barnes (September 14, 1887 in Seabright, New Jersey – February 14, 1958, in Idyllwild, California) was an American organist. He was a graduate of Yale University where he studied with Horatio Parker and Harry Jepson. After graduating from Yale, Barnes continued his studies in Paris with Louis Vierne,Vincent D'Indy, and Abel Decaux. He worked as organist at the Church of the Incarnation, New York (1911–1912), Rutgers Presbyterian Church, New York (1913–1924), St. Stephen's Episcopal Church, Philadelphia (1924–1938), and the First Presbyterian Church, Santa Monica (1938–1958).

This is another small tone picture, that depicts the shimmering light upon the water in the style that is typical of all of the music by Friml that I've uploaded.

It's restful and carefree, and I hope will bring a moment of calm into your lives during these days of intense turmoil and stress.

The score is attached below, as well as photos of Rudolf Friml and of Ediwn Shippen Barnes.
