Notes & Reviews:

The lyrical, soulful sound of the flugelhorn is paired with the orchestral rich colors of the Wanamaker organ in this beautiful recording. Popular melodies abound, from the "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" theme to Debussy's "Clair de Lune." Peter Richard Conte celebrated his 25th year as Wanamaker Grand Court Organist in 2014. He is only the fourth person to hold that title since the organ first played in 1911. He performs concerts twice daily, six days each week, on the largest fully-functioning musical instrument in the world. Andrew Ennis is a graduate of Rowan University where he received his undergraduate degree in music education, specializing in trumpet. In addition to his full-time duties as the Orchestral Music director at the Collingswood, New Jersey Middle and High Schools, Mr. Ennis also serves as the Director of Instrumental Music and Principal Organist and Pianist of St. Joachim in Bellmawr, NJ. He also studies organ with Peter Richard Conte.
