The latest volume in Simmons’s survey of organ music by the prolific American compos¬er Carson Cooman. These short, pleasant, well-crafted pieces are written in memory of various people, with “something about the musical content that is connected to the individual being memorialized” For exam¬ple, Prelude in Copper is dedicated to a metal¬lurgist, one of the world’s leading experts on copper.
Simmons delivers his usual fine per¬formance, this time on a 1787 Holzhey organ in the church of St Peter and Paul in Weissenau, Germany. Notes on the music by the composer and specification.
