Featuring two world premiere recordings, this is a major release from the USA's foremost international touring organist, Stephen Tharp. Having played more than 1400 concerts across 47 tours worldwide, Stephen Tharp has built one of the most well-respected international careers in the world, earning him the reputation as the most traveled concert organist of his generation. His 14 solo organ recordings can be found on the JAV, Aeolus, Naxos, Organum and Ethereal labels, and are available from the Organ Historical Society (ohscatalog.org), JAV Recordings (pipeorgancds.com) and Aeolus (aeolusmusic. com).
