The Canadian International Organ Competition (CIOC) is a world-renowned International Cultural Organization whose objective is to promote the beautiful art of organ music through competitions, festivals, concerts, educational activities, and monetary and professional support to emerging artists.

Mein junges Leben hat ein End (My young life has an end) is one of the best-known keyboard compositions by baroque composer Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck. The six variations musically illustrate the different stages of life, from the apparent simplicity of a four-part counterpoint to the effervescence of melodic sixteenth-note lines. The wide range of sounds of organ pipes, dark or flamboyant, natural or composed, evokes the mixture of colors in a painting or the polychromy of a stained-glass window.
