Here are all our albums which have downloadable tracks. Some albums are also available on physical CDs, while others are available only as downloads. Prices showing here are for physical discs (typically $16.98 - 18.98 with free shipping). If physical discs are not available, the price is for the digital downloaded album (typically $12.98 for CD-quality). Click on an album cover to select the delivery media you want, to see a track list, listen to audio samples, or to read the CD booklet.

Superior audio quality has always been a distinguishing characteristic of our offerings, and for this reason we do not offer MP3 compressed audio on our own Web site. (MP3 versions of our albums can be found on all the major music Web sites if you require them.) MP3 compression alters the balance between instruments and voices, and covers "reverb tails" and other low level details that are an essential part of the listening experience.

Our lowest quality download has exactly the same sound quality as our Compact Discs. If you have a faster internet connection, you can choose even higher resolution downloads for better sound for many of our albums. The most significant difference is between a 16-bit file format (CD quality) and a 24-bit file format. With many of our most recent releases you can hear audio with the same sparkling detail and dynamics as our engineers hear at the recording sessions.

We offer our albums in FLAC and ALAC file formats. FLAC is compatible with Windows and ALAC is compatible with Macs. You can also play a FLAC file on a Mac with optional software (free players are available on the Web). All our download formats offer loss-less compression: the file is made smaller for downloading, but on playback is restored to exactly the same bits as the original. Audio quality is not compromised as it is with many other formats offered on the Web.

We also provide a full-color booklet (when available) optimized for viewing on an iPad, iPhone or device with similar aspect ratios with every download purchase. We recommend that you purchase your downloads with a credit card. A download link will be emailed to you when payment has been verified.

Sample audio (60 seconds) is available for all downloadable tracks. Explore, and enjoy!

The complete organ works of Olivier Messiaen, recorded on Fisk organs by Colin Andrews. Consists of six CD packages, two of which are double-CD products. They are:

LRCD-1099 Homage a Messiaen, Nativity Suite
LRCD-1100 Les Corps Glorieiux
LRCD-1117 L'Ascension, La Messe de la Pentecote
LRCD-1148-49 Livre d'Orgue and individual works
LRCD-1150 Meditations sur le Mystere de la Sainte Trinite
LRCD-1152-53 Livre du Saint Sacrement
Intended as his final major work for organ, Messiaen's "Meditations on the Mystery of the Holy Trinity" is the culmination of his lifetime work as a composer for the organ. Begun as a set of improvisations celebrating the renovation of the organ at Trinity (and the church's 100th anniversary),  "Meditations" employs new musical languages to explore the mysteries of Christian faith. The "Livre du Saint Sacrement" is a summation of Messiaen's musical and theological persona, a statement of faith and a profound summary of his entire organ "oeuvres". Here he employs the significant compositional techniques of his life's work: modes of limited transposition, Hindu rhythms, Greek rhythms, plainsong, birdsong, "communicable language", and serialism. These elements are used to explore the mysteries of Christian faith, in this, his most massive work for organ.

Named the American Guild of Organists’ Distinguished Composer for 2016, David Ashley White was also awarded the 2015 Esther Farfel Award from the University of Houston, the university’s highest honor for teaching and creative work.

The universal importance of nighttime rituals is celebrated in this recording of choral music from many different traditions and eras. This is the first professional release by the GSU Singers under the direction of Deanna Joseph.

The Georgia State University Singers with Deanna Joseph were finalists in 2014 American Prize in Choral Performance.
“With a steady stream of choral commissions, Rindfleisch continues to add his voice to the vast repertoire of the choral canon―it is a voice that not only deserves to be heard, but one that will surely influence those working with the choral art in future generations.”
Although most pieces in Bach's Orgelbuchlein are short-form works they are anything but unsophisticated. Packed with imaginative approaches to setting chorale melodies, this set of virtuosic gems is worthy of repeated hearings.

Joan Lippincott is especially well-known for her Bach performances on Gothic. Said Fanfare magazine, "Lippincott's wide variety of tempos, colors, and moods make this possibly the most enduring Art of Fugue ever recorded...highly recommended!"
