Women have been composing organ music for at least five centuries. This volume contains some of the earliest known organ music by women composers, including Conditor Alme, written by a Spanish nun, Gracia Baptista, c. 1557.

Caterina Assandra was an Italian nun active in the music scene near Milan in the early seventeenth century.

Miss Steemson was a church organist in Lancaster, England; this processional was written around 1780.
