And Then She Wrote
A colorful miscellany of music by women composers from past and present.
Though not nearly so numerous or celebrated as their male counterparts, women composers have created a substantial and remarkable repertoire for the pipe organ. Note that Women’s Equality Day is observed on August 26.
