In the “Year of the Organ 2021”, which was proclaimed by the State Music Councils, and at the same time the second Corona year, the German Music Council, the Evangelical Church in Germany and the German Bishops’ Conference launched the project “Organ Music in Times of Corona”. The main concerns of the project sponsored by the Commissioner for Culture and Media, Prof. Monika Grütters, are the support of contemporary music and freelance composers in these times as well as the revival of live music.

Catholic and Protestant churches know the tradition that in times of crisis new works are composed and performed in church services to comfort the faithful. Following on from this, the project “Organ Music in Times of Corona” was created. 17 new compositions were commissioned that reflect the Corona period, creatively confront the past and the present and will permanently enrich the organ music oeuvre.
