About the Artist

At the 2014 American Guild of Organists National Convention, “Jonathan Ryan presented one of the convention’s finest recitals. The program was all the more remarkable for being delivered from memory… Throughout, there was a sense of clear, thorough mastery of the music, and a clear vision for its interpretation” (The Diapason).

His “exhilarating playing” (Sacred Music) is “animated, displaying an ability to interpret a wide variety of music styles convincingly” (The American Record Guide).

“A top-class organist” (Konstanzer Kulturleben), “Ryan demonstrates exceptional technique, considerable depth of musicianship, imagination, and passion” (The Journal of the Association of Anglican Musicians).
