And Then She Wrote #9934

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.
