Organ music occupies a special place and has its special audience in the multi-genre musical life of Armenia. The well-known Armenian organists and the presence of numerous organs in Yerevan, Echmiadzin, Charentsavan, Kapan and Gyumri are the evidence of this.

It is based on organ samples from the 17th and 18th centuries and is intended primarily for Baroque music.
