Notes & Reviews:

A graduate of Yale and Juilliard, Raymond Nagem is associate organist at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine.

American Record Guide, January/February 2015
Raymond Nagem is associate organist of the cathedral and is a doctoral candidate at the Juilliard School, where he studies with Paul Jacobs. It is clear from this recording that he is an exceptionally accomplished organist. He exhibits great skill in managing the colors of a large instrument in a highly reverberant space. There are signs of a strong artistic sensibility, particularly in his performances of Vierne's 'Clair de Lune' and Gerre Hancock's 'Air'.
