Azul by Veli Kujala is one of the most regularly performed composition of Finnish contemporary organ music.

Juhani Nuorvala's Prélude non retouché for mean tone organ on CD nuorvala 7.13 recorded by Susanne Kujala on the Porthan-Organ of St. Paul's Church in Helsinki (http://www.alba.fi/en/shop/products/5198)
Susanne Kujala describes the organ focusing on the needs of composers in her thesis Käsikirja uruista säveltäjille in Finnish language (http://ethesis.siba.fi/files/kasikirja_uruista.pdf). She tells about the features and principles of the organ, about the sound and registration and finally about the notation of organ music. This work is based on her doctoral studies at Sibelius Academy from 2008 until 2013. She premiered and still premieres several works per year.
