Throughout his long and influential composing life Per Nørgård (b. 1932) has had an extensive relationship with the organ. On this recording the renowned organist Jens E Christensen performs both The Organ Book, an evocative collection of shorter pieces suitable for use in church services, and the overwhelming Canon, a large-scale organ work characterized by its infinity series and golden rhythmic proportions.

Per Nørgård is widely regarded the most influential Danish composer since Carl Nielsen. In 2016 he received the prestigious Ernst von Siemens Musikpreis. Many organists will be interested in The Organ Book, a collection of organ pieces suitable for church use.

Jens E Christensen is an expert new music interpreter, having world premiered more than 80 works by composers such as Per Nørgård, Axel Borup-Jørgensen, Pelle Gudmundsen-Holmgreen and more.
