 Hans Gál, born the son of a doctor in a Viennese Jewish family, already composed an early stage and with considerable success. Nevertheless, he later destroyed the greater part of early work, as not representative of his labours.

 He won over the music world with his masterly approach to opera and even large choral works and he became the principal of the conservatory in Mainz in 1929, where he established himself as a leading figure in German musical circles. However, when Hilter came to power. his works were banned from public performance. In 1938 he and his family were forced to flee to England, and they settled in Edinburgh where in 1945 he became a lecturer at the University. he was an important figure in the formation of the Edinburgh Festival.When Hans Gál died in October 1987 at the age of 97 years, the majority of his work was unknown or was rarely performed.  
 
Although the amount of pieces he wrote for the organ is comparatively small, they do show he possessed a thorough knowledge of the instrument. In Gál’s portfolio there are three solo works for organ as well as a "Concertino" for organ and strings and two religious songs for soprano, organ and viola (or cello). All of these works have been recorded here on this album for the very first time.
