This guide is intended to help you locate organ music by female composers, as part of your 2021-2022 organ studio recording project.

Finding music by women is tricky, since most library catalogs do not track composers' gender or sexual identities.  There are, however, a number of outside resources you can use to learn names of composers and titles of pieces. Then you can check Catalyst to see if St. Olaf or Carleton have that music, or order copies of the music for yourself.
