Gordon Young (composer)
Gordon Young (October 15, 1919 – October 2, 1998) was an American organist and composer of both organ and choral works.

Kaleidoscope - Young Composers - Television | NZ On Screen
TVNZ’s arts programme visits the 6th annual Young Composers Workshop held at the Nelson School of Music (May, 1987). It allows 20 promising young composers to hear their music performed and to compare notes with their peers — an opportunity that wasn’t available two decades earlier for budding composers like workshop organiser Ross Harris. Solo instrumental works, ensemble pieces and electronic music are featured — with inspiration found in everything from poems by James K Baxter and Sylvia Plath to slipping and falling while walking down a hill.
