    Hi Unda Maris,

    Welcome to MIMF ...
    There is a wonderful PD (public domain) site IMSLP where much of this can be found.
    That site has been a very valuable resource and part of my 'virtual' organ music library.

    Happy hunting ... and we do hope that you will continue to be part of this forum community and enjoy conversing with fellow organists.

    Here's another source of (mainly Baroque & Classical era) scores – all free & legal: http://icking-music-archive.org/ByComposer.php

    Unfortunately the actual pieces you're after don't seem to be there. Worth having a look around though.

    Thanks for the welcome, and sites..
    I have one more question: where can I get "Rigaudon" (the fourth movement of Gordon Young's "Cathedral Suite") for free?

    Thanks again!

    Hmmm, Gordon Young is a contemporary (meaning, still living) so his works will be in copyright protection untial at least 70 years after his death. You'll just have to buy the copy I'm afraid.

    MIMF does not support the illegal acquisition of "pirated" copies of copyrighted material - This forum is bound by Danish law, since it originates from within Denmark itself.

    I must say that I greatly enjoy all of Gordon Young's organ compositions and have several of his compilations.

    Sadly, it seems that Gordon Young died in 1998 – see this Wikipedia entry.

    Nevertheless, there's still a sixty year wait before his works are due to come into the public domain.
