Stephen Tharp is one of the preeminent organists in the world today. This is one of his more simple and beautiful CDs that was recorded on a most glorious pipe organ, the Skinner Organ built in 1931 for the Diocese of Toledo, Ohio for its Cathedral. These are simple hymns tunes played as they might be at Mass, with harmonizations and interludes Mr. Tharp made on the spot. There is no choral accompaniment on this CD, just Mr Skinner and Mr. Tharp making exquisite music. All dynamics are shown on this CD from the most hushed strings to thunderous reed choruses.
