Album information

German composer Andreas Willscher has won many awards for his compositions, which range widely from symphonic forms and oratorio to cabaret jazz and rock. His organ works are especially fine and varied - involving often a mélange of post-tonal modernism, minimalism, and jazz and rock elements. Willscher is also an active writer of literary and scientific articles and as a collector and preserver of "lost" and forgotten music of the past. Organ Symphony No. 5 is on a grand scale but is mostly quiet peaceful and meditative with only two fast and louder sections: the symphony is subtitled "On Francis' Preaching on Holy Poverty" and is a reflection on the life and teaching of St. Francis of Asissi. Carson Cooman is organist of the Memorial Church at Harvard Univeristy and also a most prolific composer, writer and teacher. His works have appeared in many recordings and have been played in every inhabited continent. This is his first recording for Divine Art as performer, but the label has already released six albums of Cooman compositions with many more planned.
