Roland Diggle, Concert Toccata
Roland Diggle (1885-1954), for many years organist of St. John's Episcopal Church in Los Angeles, was a prolific composer for the organ. The Concert Toccata, is dedicated to Edwin A. Kraft, who was Municipal Organist and organist of Trinity Episcopal Cathedral in Cleveland, Ohio. It was one of Dr. Diggle's earliest compositions, published in 1913 while he was organist of St. John's Episcopal Church (then the Cathedral of the Diocese of Quincy) in Quincy, Illinois. At the time the church had a two-manual Marshall Bros. organ; it now has a very fine three-manual E. & G. G. Hook organ.
