Product Description

Organist Alison J. Luedecke plays the earliest four large large organs built for locations in North America by Rudolf von Beckerath, a great light in the Organ Revival worldwide and much appreciated for the beauty and timelessness of his organs. Featured are the very large organs built for Cleveland in 1957, Pittsburgh in 1962, and moderately large organs built for Montréal in 1959 and Stetson University in 1961. Superb sound is captured by engineer Ed Kelly.
