Product Description:

"The Aeolian-Skinner Legacy, Volume 1" features the magnificent 1962 Aeolian-Skinner pipe organ, Opus 1391 at St. Mark's Episcopal Church, Beaumont, Texas. Played by organist Lorenz Maycher, the disk includes over 72 minutes of music by Bach, Karg-Elert, Lidon, Mozart, Purcell, Purvis, Simonds, Sowerby, Telemann, and Vierne. The 3 manual organ was designed by Joseph S. Whiteford, in collaboration with legendary Texas organist, Roy Perry. It was installed by J.C. and Nora Williams, who, along with Mr. Perry, installed many of the great Aeolian-Skinner organs. Tonal finishing of the Beaumont organ was done by Mr. Perry, and it bears all his famous trademarks. The organ is in pristine condition, and the recorded sound is rich and excellent. A 16 page booklet accompanies the CD, including many photographs and program notes and brief history of the Aeolian-Skinner Organ Company by noted Aeolian-Skinner authority, Charles Callahan.
