The 25th anniversary of the installation of the 1911 Murray M. Harris organ at Saint James is the occasion for this double-album. Acclaimed recitalist Todd Wilson demonstrates the Harris organ's exceptional range of colors and dynamics. Extensively restored and rebuilt in 1995, the Harris organ at Saint James shows why he is often called "the Father of Organ building in the West." Harris built the instrument at St James. Todd Wilson's substantial program demonstrates the full range of colors and dynamics of this instrument -- in its first commercial recording. The award-winning East Carolina University Chamber Singers are directed here by James Franklin. Recorded in one of our favorite acoustics (St Paul's Episcopal, Greenville, NC---our 6th in this room), the Singers are accompanied by Andrew Scanlon on the French Romantic style three-manual organ by C. B. Fisk. The Producer for this album is the multi-Grammy award winner, Blanton Alspaugh. Franklin has programmed significant works from the 19th and 20th centuries, including Britten's Hymn to St Cecilia, Rutter's "Be Thou my Vision", Biebl's Ave Maria, and works by Bairstow, Martin, Durufle, Elgar, Mendelssohn, and Arvo Part.

A prominent element in the shared culture of cities of the Hanseatic League were the pipe organs. Jonathan Moyer begins a series on these remarkable instruments in Lubeck, on an organ with pipework from the mid-1400s. Expanded by Stellwagen in 1637, the "north" organ in St Jakobi was an important model in the revival of historical styles of organ building in the 20th century.
