Murray, Glasgow and Cundick were recorded on the 206-rank Tabernacle Organ, performances given during a special weekend symposium in January 1989. Lohmann's performance on the 65-rank instrument in the refurbished Assembly Hall was taped in October 1988. The Tabernacle's Skinner, through recitals and weekly broadcasts, is likely the best known and best loved pipe organ in the world.
