About the Author


If you're looking for impressive credentials, you won't find them here. I began organ study around 1968 in Waterbury CT, and studied organ at Yale University, where I received my Bachelor's degree -- in Computer Science, not organ. I have been a member of the American Guild of Organists on and off (mostly on) since 1980, and have served as a substitute organist as the opportunity arises and my schedule permits. In the spring of 2003, while an unemployed victim of the Second Great Depression, I was fortunate enough to serve a brief apprenticeship as a voicer with Manual Rosales. I am now living in southern New Hampshire.

I am also a folk musician (gasp!) -- yes, I even play guitar -- performing with my wife Mary Ellen Wessels as “Hopeful Romantics”. But the organ remains my first love, particularly the works of Bach, Couperin and d'Aquin. My hobbies, of which I have too many, include reading (especially Science Fiction & Fantasy), model railroading (N and G gauges), and woodworking.

My permanent personal e-mail address is ed@mewsic.com; however, it has not been reliable in recent years. A more reliable address to reach me at is: EdStauff@gmail.com.
