…the new 66-stop tracker organ by Paul Fritts at Saint Joseph Cathedral joins this city’s already rich local instrumental resources.

Performances at Saint Joseph Cathedral were recorded during concerts from the new organ’s inaugural series. Thanks to engineers Dave Gelfer at WOSU-FM, Andrew R. MacGregor at NoiseFloor Productions and Sam Ritchie at Conductor’s Point Audio. For a bit of contrast, we’ve included three selections recorded at First Congregational Church on to two very contrasting instruments.
