Here is a running list of works for organ by women. For now the list will comprise pieces that I come across as I search for new repertoire and will be presented in no particular order; if it gets unwieldy then I’ll put it into a spreadsheet for sorting purposes. (Asterisk indicates the piece is in my repertoire.) If you have any pieces to suggest please add a comment to this page!
