JAV 104 — Great Organ Builders, Volume 4 — Timothy Smith

Diminutive cousins to the other instruments in this series, Opus 837 at the Seminary of the Immaculate Conception, Huntington, New York and Opus 866 at Marquand Chapel, Yale University nonetheless bear the tonal trademarks established by E.M. Skinner. Organs of 25 and 22 stops, respectively, each has no less than twelve 8-foot flue stops in its three manual divisions. The presence of several orchestral reed voices in these two organs gives them plenty of color for the performance of the choral preludes included on the disc, Langlais’ "La Nativité," Franck’s "Prelude, Fugue and Variation," and a lovely transcription of "The Swan" from Saint-Saens’ Carnival of the Animals.
