Maxine Thévenot, Associate Organist-Choir Director at the Cathedral Church of St. John in Albuquerque, New Mexico, one of two recordings being simultaneously released as the “first” CDs of the 2002 Reuter organ, op. 2210, at the Cathedral. Works explore the range of Baroque, Romantic, and the introduction of recently composed works in their recording premieres.

Writes Albert Neutel, President of the Reuter firm, “The warm acoustics in this ‘mile high’ cathedral space, and the placement of the organ, allowed for the use of varied wind pressure to create the sound of what is truly a cathedral organ. The Great principal chorus is voiced on 2-3/8" pressure while the enclosed divisions are on 6". The Tuba plays on 25" of pressure. The Antiphonal, located over the main entry to the cathedral, plays on 3" of pressure, with the Bishop’s Trumpet on 6". The tonal design of the organ is Reuter’s American Classic. Every stop in the organ is voiced with the ideal harmonic development for clarity and refined beauty. The layering of musical textures allows for seamless crescendos to a commanding tutti.”
