Lynne Davis performs extensively and always to enthusiastic critical acclaim both in Europe and North America. Her recordings include discs, radio broadcasts and live performances particularly on the famed organ at Chartres Cathedral in France where her disc "Musique pour Cathedrales" won the coveted French 5 Diapasons award. After Ms. Davis' recording, "Lynne Davis en Concert" on the world-renowned Cavaille-Coll organ at the church of St. Etienne in Caen in Normandy, her most recent CD is "Lynne Davis at the Marcussen organ in Wiedemann Hall".
