Description: Nordic Organ Music, Vol. 1 deals with Swedish and Finnish composers from the baroque to the present day. What they practically all have in common, except for Sibelius's two occasional works, is some indebtedness to baroque models, although Maasalo shows the influences of his study in France and there is a similar influence in Kuusisto's piece. Parviainen's is the largest (over ten minutes) and combines baroque clarity with a restrained contemporary style.
