Marijim Thoene plays the 3m organ of 38 ranks built in 2000 by the Dobson Pipe Organ Builders of Lake City, Iowa, in the grand acoustics of St. Joseph Abbey, St. Benedict, Louisiana. Works by Hovhaness, Atkinson, and Vosk were commissioned by Marijim Thoene. The unusual Vosk work is composed in six descriptive movements for the rare combination of organ and native American flute which is played by Kathleen Joyce-Grendahl.
