Atlanta Summer Organ Festival Recital
Thomas Murray

Presented by Delbert Lowell Jacks in memory of Thomas Ruben Jones, and by Friends of Cathedral Music

Thomas Murray was named Emeritus Professor of Organ at Yale University upon his retirement in 2019 after thirty-eight years of distinguished service on the Yale faculty. In a performing and recording career spanning more than a half-century he has become renowned especially for his interpretations of Romantic repertoire and music transcribed for the organ from orchestral and other media.

His performances have taken Murray to England, to eight continental European cities, to Australia, Japan and Argentina, as well as across the North American continent. The New York City chapter of the American Guild of Organists named him International Artist of the Year for 1986; as a recipient of this award he followed such luminaries as Marie-Claire Alain, Jean Guillou and Dame Gillian Weir. 

He holds honorary Fellowship diplomas from both the Royal College of Organists in England (2003) and the Royal Canadian College of Organists (2016). At Yale he has coached many of today’s leading young concert performers; in 2005 he was awarded the Gustave Stoeckel Award for excellence in teaching from the Yale University School of Music.
