Gatty Sellars “The Angelus”

April 28, 2020

Gatty Sellars, “the world’s greatest descriptive organist,” wrote this gem: “Angelus” is the Latin word for angel and is a daily devotion that commemorates the Incarnation of Jesus; it originated during the 14th century in the Roman Catholic Church in Italy.

The name comes from the beginning text, “Angelus Domini nuntiavit Mariæ” (The Angel of the Lord declared unto Mary). He does not call for chimes in the printed music here, but he used them when playing this piece in concert.
