Instruments: Fritts-Richards Organ, St. Alphonsus Parish Church, Seattle WA, USA
A wonderful instrument in a live acoustic. Playing is traditional "Werkprinzip" registration and articulation, but quite brilliant at times. Recommended.

An excellent recording. Beautiful accoustics enrich an intelligent, sensitive performance.
