NEW PUBLICATIONS

Christopher Holman released his second CD entitled Bach and His Teachers, a live recording of a recital for Bach Society Houston on the Fritz Noack organ at Christ the King Lutheran Church in Houston, Texas. The program consists of early organ works by J.S. Bach, and later pieces by composers whose music he had in his library (Buxtehude, Frescobaldi, and Couperin). It is available in high definition formats here.

Christopher Holman's paper "Rhythm and Metre in French Classical Plainchant" was published in Oxford University's journal Early Music. Prior to this, the paper was recently presented at the Eastman-Rochester Organ Initiative and National Convention of the American Guild of Organists, and can be viewed (with an Oxford Academic subscription) here.
