The art of registration is a branch of organ technique pertaining to the use of stops, couplers, and accessories of the modern organ. It is a subject of great importance in the development of fine organ playing, and should be studied simultaneously with ordinary organ studies of actual playing if the desired perfection is to be fully achieved. An organist needs a good workable understanding of registration and the stops of his particular organ in order that he may use his technical proficiency to its best advantage in making his music speak to others.
