The organ of the world famous Cathedral of St. Patrick in New York City was originally built by the Kilgen firm in the 1930's. Although tonally altered over the years, including significant revoicing in the French manner during the 1970's, the organ remains a powerful and effective vehicle for Romantic organ music and transcriptions. Stanley H. Cox gives a solid performance of a well-balanced and varied program including music for organ plus trumpet, soprano and flute. In addition, Mr. Cox performs an improvisation which he dedicates to his teacher, Gerre Hancock, as well as the premiere recording of Peter Stoltzfus' Prelude and Fugue on the name C.O.L.E.M.A.N., commissioned by Joe Vitacco for this recording. The disposition for this enormous instrument and essays on the music are provided.
