The first recording of the Fritts organ at St. Joseph Cathedral, Columbus, Ohio! Dedicated in December, 2006, this organ took more than two years to construct, consists of about 5,000 pipes, and ranks as one of the largest mechanicalaction organs in the United States. Gothic artist Douglas Cleveland, director of music at Plymouth Congregational in Seattle, “pulls out all the stops” in the organ’s vast tonal palette. The CD starts with a Battalia for the horizontal trumpet stop (located inside the pedal towers).
