King's Chapel was founded in 1686 as an Anglican church, but became independent in the 1780's, becoming the first Unitarian Church in North America. The chapel retains its Anglican heritage in worship and music.  Daniel Pinkham was its Music Director for 42 years, which includes the time when a revolutionary new Fisk organ was installed in 1964.  Barry Turley plays a varied program which includes music by Bach, Reger, Widor, Pinkham and early American composer, William Selby.
Crozier's brilliant recital is captured on this recording made in 1979 when the 85-rank Kuhn organ was new.  Included here are two works rarely heard: Distler's partita on Wachet Auf and Sokola's wild Passacaglia on B-A-C-H. In the year that this recording was released, Crozier received the coveted "International Performer of the Year" award from the New York City chapter of the American Guild of Organists.
 
The Fisk organ of Old West Church in Boston is an ideal match for the lyrical sounds of Mozart. Certain stops from older organs were incorporated into the instrument giving it an antique sound that is unique in Fisk's works.

Joan Lippincott plays some of Mozart's best known works, and a few that rarely heard on organ.  Includes notes of Mozart and the organ.

John Weaver, one of the America’s finest concert organists, was Director of Music at Madison Avenue Presbyterian Church in New York City from 1970-2005. He was Head of the Organ Department at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia from 1972 to 2003, and also Chair of the Organ Department at The Juilliard School from 1987 to 2004. Here he plays a varied program, including some rarely heard works by Leighton and Bingham. His program concludes with his own Fantasia for Organ.
Completed just after the large organ at the Meyerson Symphony Center (home of the Dallas Symphony), the Fisk at SMU shares many of the same characteristics that have made Fisk the leading builder of concert hall organs. 

The organist is Michael Farris, who was on the organ faculty of the Eastman School of Music when he died tragically in his early 40's.  Farris won three national performance competitions including the MTNA Collegiate Artists Competition in 1976, the Ft. Wayne Competition in 1985, and the National Young Artist Competition of the American Guild of Organists in 1986 and was one of the brightest "organ" stars of his generation.
The trumpet/organ ensemble Clarion specializes in new and difficult works for organ and trumpet.  Included here are several world premier recordings.

The 1994 Lively-Fulcher organ includes significant amounts of pipework from the church's original 1895 Carl Barckhoff.  Two 16-foot choruses on the manuals, plus a solo division with Bombarde's and cornet, and a full pedal with two 32-foot stops provide the gravitas required by Liszt's organ works.
 
Head of the organ faculty at Peabody, Donald Sutherland is a Liszt expert, and renders this repertoire with drama and excitement.  The addition of Lizst's Cujus animan (a transcription Rossini's Stabat mater) for trombone and organ is a delicious bonusGenerous acoustics put it all together in this superb recording.
This organ CD is always in our best-sellers list, year after year.  With both popular and unusual works in his progam, Cathedral Organist Donald Dumler strikes just the right balance of musical choices.  Both the Chancel and Grand Gallery Organs were built by Kilgen, and are controlled by two new "twin" five-manual consoles.  With 177 stops and over 9,000 pipes, the organ is both a grand musical statement, and a priceless antique whose sounds evoke the ideals of organbuilding in the 1920's.
 
Includes Bach's Toccata & Fugue in d minor, Handel's Largo from "Xerxes," Clarke's Trumpet Tune and Elgar's Pomp and Circumstance, No. 1.
The former Music Director of St Mary the Virgin plays a brilliant recital on the church's 1933 Aeolian-Skinner organ - one of the first instruments that could be described as an "American Classic" design.  The organ was revised, with substantial changes in the number of divisions, by G. Donald Harrison in 1942.  The highly reverberant acoustics of St Mary's enhance the organ's tonal pallet, which bears strong French Romantic influences.

The large Flentrop organ of Duke University Chapel is the venue for the latest in Lippincott's Bach organwork series. Those works entitled "Toccata" are among Bach's most famous and best loved works.  Notes by Bach scholar George Stauffer, and a description with complete stoplist of the Flentrop organ are included in the booklet. In her second recording as resident organist at the Meyerson, Mary Preston presents a Germanic program which provides a wide variety of sounds and textures.  The landmark Fisk organ at the Meyerson is in an adjustable acoustic which can be optimized for solo organ concerts and recordings, giving the organ sound elegance and lyrical flexibility. University organist Robert Parkins plays both large organs of Duke University Chapel.  The Flentrop tracker organ in the rear gallery is ideal for the early Romantic elegance of Mendelssohn, and the lyracism of Rheinberger, which the Aeolian organ in the chancel provides the gravitas necessary for Liszt.  An imaginative program that combines two large organs of contrasting style.

M. Skinner and the 1966 Aeolian-Skinner organ.  In 1995, Austin Organs reworked the instrument, added ranks and building a new console.
 
As always, Swann has crafted a program to please, beginning with Bach's great Toccata in D minor.

Franck and Widor established French Romantic organ work.  Franck's Grande pièce symphonique was the first to use the term "symphony"; Widor's fifth symphony is perhaps the most famous work of the genre, and concludes with his ever-popular Toccata.  The works of both composers are well-suited to the grand, Gothic space of the National Cathedral. Judith Hancock has earned an enviable reputation as a performer of Romantic music.  In this recording she contrasts the Antiphons of Dupré, first improvised at a vespers service in 1919 at Notre Dame, with the supremely challenging music of Czech composer, Petr Eben. Taken from the text of Veni, Creator Spiritus, "Celestial Fire" explores mostly new music, some with Pentecost themes.  The 70-rank Goulding & Wood organ is Romantically inclined, and projects into a room with six seconds of reverberation.  Douglas Clevelands artistry and imaginative programming, make this unusual recording worth hearing!

Alan Morrison plays the massive Schantz organ (154 ranks, 9513 pipes) at the Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart in Newark.  With a broad variety of available sounds, Morrison creates long, dynamic crescendo's and soaring melodies which brings this program to life.
Not all great organ music is big and bombastic—as these sonatas prove! Requiring flawless technique on the part of the player, these three-movement chamber works are delightful pieces on the surface; deeper analysis reveals marvelously constructed compositions that could only spring from the mind of J.S. Bach.
Lippincott plays the perfectly-suited Taylor and Boody organ at St Thomas Church, NY. Extensive notes by Bach scholar, George Stauffer.
David's Higgs is Professor of Organ at the Eastman School of Music, and widely admired for both his extraordinary technique, but his ability to communicate to audiences.  This unusual program at The Riverside Church includes rarely played works by jazz pianist, George Shearing, David Conte, Alain and William Bolcom, but is anchored by barn-burning favorites by Mendelssohn, and Franck, concluding with a thrilling performance of the Duruflé Suite.

A timeless, Romantic setting of the agony of Christ's Passion, this CD is consistently a Gothic Catalog best seller.  Sung in English, and beautifully accompanied on organ by Frederick Swann. Also included are Mendelssohn's classic "Hear My Prayer" and Dubois' Grand Chorus for organ. Bach concertos for organ and orchestra?  Joan Lippincott makes a compelling and logical case for constructing organ concertos from the "organ sinfonias" of Bach's cantatas.  Booklet includes essay on these organ solo+orchestra pieces by noted Bach scholar, George Stauffer.

Of the many musical forms that J.S. Bach cultivated during his lifetime, none has enjoyed more lasting influence than the prelude and fugue. In this recording, Joan Lippincott provides us with a beautifully rounded survey of Bach's mature preludes and fugues, from the Pièce d'Orgue, BWV 572, one of his boldest independent preludes, to the Prelude and Fugue in E Minor ("Wedge"), BWV 548, one of his most ambitious compostions for the organ. To round out the recording, Lippincott also includes the Canonic Variations on Vom Himmel hoch, a very late work, written at the same time Art of Fugue and the Musical Offering
One of America's leading organists plays in concert on one of America's largest and most important organs -- the landmark Opus 100 of the C.B. Fisk organ company.  Called upon repeatedly to perform at the national conventions of the American Guild of Organists, Mary Preston has flawless technique and an elegant style to communicates to the listener.  The encore also reveals that she has a sense of humor...
Presented here are some of the organ works which were played by Susan Ferré during services at Pacific Lutheran University, from the first day of classes on September 11, through the year for more than 130 services, to the triumphant sending forth of Pentecost Sunday and Commencement Worship on May 26th, 2002.

In this survey of music by the French Roman Catholic mystic, Olivier Messiaen, Jonathan Dimmock plays some of his popular works, and also includes two rarely performed compositions, published only afer his death in 1992.  The organ used for this recording is very similar in size and disposition to Messiaen's own instrument at Trinité in Paris. The performance, the organ and Erik Sikkema's ULSI recording technology combine to produce an unusual and exceptional CD.

The neo-Gothic First Congregational Church of Los Angeles is home to the world’s largest church organ. The instrument known as “The Great Organs of First Church“ is, quite simply, one of the wonders of the musical world. Its size is only one aspect of its uniqueness: one must add its spatial distribution around the building, the variety of its components and the tonal balance of the whole---and one could also add the story of its gradual evolution. The new organist of the church, David Goode, puts this instrument through its paces with a highly varied program ranging from Frescobaldi to Gershwin.

The music on this disc is all closely associated with The Wanamaker Organ, arguably the greatest symphonic organ ever built. John and Rodman Wanamaker left us, as their legacy, the very pinnacle of symphonic organ design; over the past century, many of the world's leading organists have made pilgrimages to perform on this great instrument. Several have composed works especially for the Wanamaker organ, inspired by its truly unique and wonderfully rich, warm character, and by the splendor of its unparalleled palette of orchestral color. Features only the second recording on this instrument by current Grand Court organist Peter Richard Conte. Full color booklet explaining the history of the organ and all the famous organists who played there. Full specifications of the organ, and detailed articles on its history.

Midnight in the Grand Court is a magic hour. Only at this hushed time can the Wanamaker organ be heard in its full beauty. This NEW recording offers you the opportunity to enjoy the infinite variety of kaleidoscopic possibilities flowing from the throats of 28,482 pipes --- recorded at midnight.

The phenomenal best-selling recording of the Wanamaker Grand Court organ, back by popular demand! With its state-of-the-art recording techniques including HDCD digital encoding, this CD offers an amazing sonic experience. Out of print and unavailable for months, we are excited to announce its long-awaited reissue on the Gothic label.

Two extraordinary organists playing two extraordinary organs in dialogue might seem an over-abundance of riches. Yet it is possible that the great organists of earlier times enjoyed responding to each other across vast spaces. This new recording, which includes compositions by six masters of the North German School, recreates this sound and ambience using two mean-tone organs in Stanford's Memorial Church.

"This recording honors the Jewish liturgical tradition of cantor with organ-- and a rising star of American cantors. The historic 1901 Murray Harris organ at Stanford University is the perfect instrument for this music, which is concentrated in the latter half of the 19th and early 20th centuries."
Cathedral organist Mel Butler plays a program of French music, from de Grigny to Tournemire. Although it is a Dutch organ, the 1965 Flentrop is surprisingly well-suited to French repertoire.  With an abundance of reeds, beautiful flutes and six seconds of reverberation, the organ renders French music in an highly effective, if not authentic style. Mel Butler lives a superb performance, which is captured with our proprietary 24-bit recording technology.  Highly recommended!


Titled after the architectural style of the two churches to which they were dedicated, the final two symphonies of Charles-Marie Widor represent his most arresting and original compositions for organ. Written as concert works, these symphonies pay homage to the church through the use of chant themes-the “Gothic” with the Christmas introit, Puer natus est nobis (“Unto us a Child is born”) and the “Romane” with the Easter gradual Haec dies quam fecit Dominus (“This is the day the Lord has made”). David Fuller is a well-known scholar of French music and brings these late works of Widor to life brilliantly in this recording.

A contemporary of Max Reger, Hans Fährmann wrote monumental - and monumentally difficult - works for vast organs in which the display of contrapuntal mastery was a central feature. This first recording of his eighth sonata is accompanied by another first: a triptych arranged from Wagner's Meistersinger. David Fuller plays the large symphonic Fisk organ of SUNY-Buffalo.
This recording traces the works of female composers from Medieval times through the twentieth century. Played on the Rosales organ of Trinity Episcopal Cathedral in Portland, Oregon, this program includes some music never before recorded on compact disc. Featured composers include Elfrida Andree, Florence Price, Ethel Smyth, and Fanny Mendelssohn. "Bach and the Italian Influence" explores the Italian influences on Bach, and is presented by organ scholar and international performing artist, Kimberly Marshall. The Stanford Fisk is unique in that it incorporates two different tuning temperaments (well-tempered and meantone), both of which are heard on this recording.

What if the greatest keyboard players of the first half of the eighteenth century, Bach, Scarlatti, and Handel--all born the same year--had met in a contest pitting their devastating technical brilliance and quickness of invention each against the other? This recording imagines these three remarkable musicians competing on that most celestial of instruments, the organ; the organ being the large Fisk-Nanney at Stanford Memorial Church.
Bach Encounters Buxtehude
Kimberly Marshall, organist

In the autumn of 1705, Johann Sebastian Bach traveled to Lübeck to learn what he could from the famous organist, Buxtehude. Accounts suggest that his organ playing changed dramatically. On this CD you can explore the often intangible links between these two composers, bringing together some of their most popular works for the organ.
The three monumental works recorded here (Liszt's Ad Nos, Reubke's Psalm 94 and Stehle's Saul) represent three “generations” of a musical species that evolved with nineteenth-century romanticism and died out without ever acquiring a distinctive name. It was nourished above all by a new preoccupation with the expressive and pregnant “theme”–anything from a motif to a whole tune–as the essential constructive element of a piece of music. Along with this went an obsession with unity, specifically, a fascination with the idea that a large composition could be unified and its parts linked together by the periodic return or the constant presence of such a theme, either unchanged or modified, fragmented, and “developed” in the manner of a Beethoven symphony, or “transformed” into something quite different in character but still recognizable.

Extensive notes on the music and the organ. A second, narrated version of the Stehle is provided without additional cost.

Two organists, both students of Sweelinck, dominated the organ scene in Hamburg in the early 1600's, but their temperaments and music are a study of contrasts.  William Porter plays the landmark North German Organ of Gothenburg Sweden.

This CD offers up a true European community of forces: Salzburgian music, performed by a Spaniard and an Italian at the same time, on a Spanish organ! This recording will transform the way you think about the organ, and about Mozart. If you?ve always considered the organ to be mainly a liturgical instrument, listen to these great symphonic works and then think again. Rediscover the majesty of these pieces as arranged for what Mozart himself called the "King of Instruments."
Dr. J. Melvin Butler plays three suites from "L'Orgue Mystique," interspersed between written improvisations by Tournemire. Liner notes are written by noted Tournemire scholar, Ann Labounsky.

But is it Tournemire in Oberlin, or Chartres? This unusual double CD features the new Aristide Cavaillé-Coll-style Fisk organ as it sounds in Finney Chapel at Oberlin College, and also as it might sound if it were in Chartres Cathedral. New recording technology makes it possible to create a mathematical model of a room's acoustics from measurements taken in the room itself. With sufficient computing power, a program can then place any sound (in this case, the sound of the Fisk organ at Oberlin) in the modelled acoustics. Does it work? You be the judge! Both versions (2 CDs) are included in this package--2 CDs for the price of one!
Following the success of the first volume, composer Pamela Decker performs another program of her highly acclaimed work. Decker's definitive recordings were both made on the great 4M/58-stop Flentrop organ of St. Mark's Cathedral, Seattle. With six seconds of reverberation and 24-bit-recording technology, these CDs are audiophile gems as well as world-premiere recordings!
