The historical study is followed by 3 chapters, first including the personal memories and experiences of the contemporary dramaturg and festival organizer Hana Bartošová. The essay on the organist's mission as a concert artist was contributed by the founder of the organ festival, prof.

The chapter on the concert organs, which the individual music evenings are played, was prepared by P. Jan Martin Bejček, OSB. The last part of the collective monograph consists of overviews of concerts held since the first years of the festival (Hana Bartošová), then in the period when the artistic and financial patronage of the Brno Organ Festival was taken over by the Club of Moravian Composers (Marek Sedláček) and an overview of non-Brno concerts (Hana Bartošová). The text has a source nature, the authors draw on preserved written documents and interviews with witnesses and festival organizers.
