MorningStar Music Publishers is pleased to announce the release of collected articles by veteran organist, Haig Mardirosian. Vox Humana is Mardirosian’s column in The American Organist, the official journal of the American Guild of Organists and the Associated Pipe Organ Builders of America, which ran monthly for exactly a decade from 2003 to 2013.
Haig Mardirosian (b. 1947, New York City) is Dean of the College Arts and Letters at the University of Tampa. He has earned international standing as a composer, conductor, concert organist, and recording artist. He has performed in important international festivals and has 20 recordings to his credit on various labels in the United States and Europe. As a writer and critic, Mardirosian has contributed nearly 1,500 reviews and features to a variety of publications. He also serves as director of the Editorial Resources Committee of the American Guild of Organists.
Appearing in an annotated collection for the first time here, Mardirosian creates an image encompassing both the breadth and depth of the instrument and profession through humor, memory, business, liturgy, and, of course, artistry. This reflection of the organ and those who play it is an essential read for those searching for perspective or new ideas, as well as those looking for understanding, nostalgia, or a bit of humor.
