This is the first commercially released recording by an American organist on this landmark instrument. Internationally renowned concert organist Stephen Tharp, long since intimately familiar with the work of Cavaille-Coll from his many European tours, plays an all-French program including music by composers associated with this organ, but repertoire not previously recorded at St. Sulpice. An extensive booklet contains a lengthy article by the organ's curator Michel Goussu, and numerous never-before-published photographs from inside the organ itself. Recorded by the German engineer Christoph Martin Frommen, this disc has been critically acclaimed for not only the performances, but also for its sound.
