Harry Wilkinson, Organist
The 1933 E. M. Skinner Organ at Girard College enjoys a unique and effective placement above the ceiling of the vast room with an acoustical impact seldom heard. On this long unavailable recording Harry Wilkinson shows his mastery of both organ and repertoire in a program of works more than comfortable in this lush ambience.
