More about Carson Cooman's recording project
In the fall of 2011, Carson Cooman began a project to create online demonstration recordings of organ repertoire by 20th and 21st century composers. The pieces chosen are primarily short works that are accessible and useful to organists of all skill levels, for either service or recital playing.
