Notes & Reviews:

In the early morning of January 1, 2012, the Somers Congregational Church burned to the ground as a result of arson. In May of 2014, after two long years of struggle, the church was finally rebuilt, and dedicated, and a new Richards-Fowkes organ was placed in the sanctuary. The organ and acoustics of the room are ideal for chamber music and performance of solo organ literature. The recorded program includes works for cello and organ, flute and organ, as well as a thorough demonstration of the organ alone. Artists are Christa Rakich, organist and artist-in-residence at the Congregational Church of Somers, Kathleen Schiano, cellist, and Greig Shearer, flute.
