The grand acoustics of a resonant cathedral building present the ideal setting for any organ, and when the instrument has many fine qualities so expertly exploited by a vastly talented organist, the results are spectacular! Thomas Bara, one of the organists and accompanists at St. Thomas Church in New York City under Gerre Hancock for many years, plays this recent (2003) organ built by The Reuter Organ Company for the Roman Catholic Cathedral of St. Francis Xavier in Alexandria, Louisiana. Recording engineer Peter Nothnagle captures the fine acoustics and sumptuous sounds in a technically outstanding CD.
