Notes & Reviews:

A towering testament to the twentieth-century organ building tradition, The Aeolian Opus 1785 pipe organ which resides in Duke University Chapel was built in 1932 and fully restored in 2008. This album of twentieth-century organ compositions, arrangements, and transcriptions, show the full range and capabilities of the instrument. The tunes range from traditional Irish folk songs, to William Bolcom's Gospels, and Marcel Dupre's Trois Preludes et Fugues Op. 7. These works are performed by master organist
