Pendragon Press has just released the book
Stokowski and the Organ
by Rollin Smith

A very detailed and well-investigated book about Stokowski, the organist, enriched with many pictures and interesting documents. The extensive appendix lists among other things Stokowski's organ repertoire and organ recitals performed by Stokowski (which indicate already a certain affinity to the orchestra - a pity that these were not recorded!), as well as the complete scores of four choral works by Stokowski. An invaluable source of information, not only for organ lovers!

Further details can be found here.

Pendragon is prepared to offer members of Stokowski Society a discount of 20% off the list price of the book, $46.
