Description:
Gatty Sellars (1887-1938) was described during his career as “the world’s greatest descriptive organist.” He played on radio and in films, and was filmed playing his "At the Temple Gates," at Central Hall, Westminster, which you can see on youtube:

"Fancies" was published in 1916 by J. Fischer & Bro. It is dedicated: "To W. Ray Burroughs".

Burroughs was Organist and Choirmaster at the Delaware Ave. Baptist Church, Buffalo, New York.

If you know the music of Gatty Sellars, you'll immediately know that this is going to be "light" music, but it's still quite refined, and not all that easy to play.

This was would certainly have been welcomed on a recital program and would make for an excellent encore.

I won't go into a complicated description, because you'll have to listen and decide whether or not you like the piece.

However, I will issue a "smile warning," and tell you that there is a little "surprise" waiting at the end. :-)

The score is attached below, as well as several photos of Gatty Sellars, and one of his signature.
