Word from Michael Barone about the death Wednesday night of Minnesota organist and composer Paul Manz, whose most famous choral work is the Advent motet "E'en So, Lord Jesus, Quickly Come."

In 2001, Manz was featured in a PIPEDREAMS program of his compositions, performances and commentary. More about that when you click here.

Paul Manz was 90.
