Notes and Editorial Reviews

In October 2011, American organist Christian Lane won 1st Prize at the 2nd Canadian International Organ Competition (CIOC) held in Montreal. On this new recording, Mr. Lane embraces a wide sample of music, with the magnificent Casavant organ Op. 869 at des Saints-Anges Gardiens Church in Lachine (Montreal) as his inspiration and focus. The program includes romantic repertoire from three traditions and comprises works by Elgar, Schumann, Liszt, Vierne, and Dupré among others.

Christian Lane is one of America’s most accomplished young organists. Consistently acclaimed for his “driving energy and mature interpretation (The American Organist),” he holds a Bachelor’s degree and the Sacred Music Diploma from the Eastman
Read more School of Music, where his mentor and teacher was Prof. David Higgs. Subsequently, he completed graduate work with Prof. Thomas Murray as a Robert Baker Scholar at Yale University, earning a Master’s degree from the Yale School of Music and a certificate from Yale’s Institute of Sacred Music.
