More information about the program

Many prominent composers over the centuries have served as church musicians and KVAH's programs, especially this year, have included music by composers who were also significant organists, such as Saint-Saëns, Widor and Vierne during the French festival and Elfrida Andrée earlier this year. In today's concert we've refined this theme and the program consists entirely of works by Swedish composers who were also active as church organists.
