John Knowles Paine Organ Works, Murray Forbes Somerville, Organist - [OAR-460] $15.98

John Knowles Paine (b. 1839 Portland, Maine - d.1906), the first university organist and first professor of music at Harvard University, studied in Germany and first made his mark as an organist.

Hook at Immaculate Conception Church, Boston; 1863 E. F. Walcker now at Methuen Memorial Music Hall and rebuilt by Aeolian-Skinner in 1947; and the 1997 Lynn Dobson op. 69 at Pakachoag Church, Auburn, Massachusetts
