Jan Raas The organ works of Hugo Distler
HetORGEL 104 (2008), nr. 4, 12-17 [summary]
A chronological overview of Distler’s organ works forms anaccurate mirror of his life, in which organ playing and church musicfaded more and more into the background as he, both in his composingand his performing, placed choral music at the center of his attention.
Distler’s organ work comprises but five titles, grouped intwo opus numbers, a modest total in comparison with his choral works.
