Marian Ruhl Metson plays the Bozeman-Gibson organ at St. Paul's Episcopal Church, Brookline, Massachusetts, and the George Bozeman, Jr., & Co. organ at The Eliot Church, Newton, Massachusetts.

Chicagoan Ernst Bacon (1898-1990) composed Spirits and Places as a collection of twelve very approachable movements, none longer than than 3.5 minutes, which describe such famous American images as Plymouth Rock, a Saluda River Baptism in South Carolina, a cabin during a Maine rainstorm, and Rattlesnake Bar during the California Gold Rush.

Englishman John Cook (1918-1984) worked in the church and in the theatre, relocating to Canada in 1954 as organist-choirmaster at St. Paul's Cathedral, London, Ontario and musical director of the Stratford, Ontario, Shakespeare Festival. He was organist-choirmaster at Church of the Advent, Boston, Massachusetts, 1962-68.
