Janet Correll (b. 1942) — Calvary (1988) for organ
“Calvary” (1988) is a quiet and lyrical meditation. Though not based on a hymn, the melodic material is somewhat reminiscent of one.

Correll is a former professor of music (Cayuga Community College in Auburn, New York) and served as teacher and organist in Illinois, Indiana, Texas, and New York State.
