    Any organ composers in baroque style?

    If there is anyone composing for the isntrument in such style, I would very much like to hear your compositions. Right now I am studying composition in the early 18th century language and would love to hear others' creations.

    Yes, I know of 2 composers who are writing Baroque-influenced music for organ - Richard White and Robert Lind. I'd post some links, but since I'm new here I'd not want anyone to think I'm promoting commercial interests on my first post

    If you were to Google "Richard White Organ" or "Robert Lind Organ" you'd probably find some sites that would direct you to their music, maybe even an audio clip or two

    Cheers,

    I've written a few Fugues and Prelude/Toccata works in a Baroque style. They're usually as an example of 'pastiche' techniques for students but I've performed a couple of the more credible ones. When my father turned 60, I wrote a 'Fantasia and Little Fugue' in a purely Baroque style for him, as he was influential in starting me on the organ in the first place.

    I think I may have a performance of the Fantasia and Little Fugue on DAT somewhere but I'd have to go hunting and then convert it to an mp3. I'm not even sure where the old Encore score is but I'm hoping to convert some of them to Sibelius, so the chance of grabbing a score may exist at a later date. PM me if you want anything definite.
