Gerard Bunk was one of the greatest organists of the first half of the twentieth century. He developed his own characteristic style, independent of Reger. His organ compositions can be divided into individual freely-composed works, character pieces, choral introductions and six large-scale concert pieces.
Volume V presents Bunkís late organ works, which are comparable in quality to the works of Max Reger and Sigfrid Karg-Elert. Harmonically bold and full of individual style, the works provide one of the earliest examples of late Romantic style before the emergence of the Organ Reform Movement.
