A sampler of music written since 1992, Canadian Organ Music Showcase presents the varied ways in which six composers write for the organ in its rich and colourful persona. Drawing on sources as dissimilar as chant, folk song, renaissance music, childhood memories and radio programs from the 1950s, the composers approach the organ in highly individual, sometimes non-traditional ways.

"Windsor-based organist and music professor David Palmer is a remarkable sound colourist who brings six new compositions to life on the magnificent 1986 Casavant-Frères organ at Calgary's Jack Singer Concert Hall."
- John Terauds, The Toronto Star
