Ever since Pomp & Pipes!, we’ve had many requests for MORE ORGAN MUSIC! In 1988, “Prof.” Keith Johnson recorded this CD to be sold only at St. Mary’s Cathedral. RR has obtained rights to issue it in a newly-remastered edition with superior graphics and entirely new music notes. Hear some of the most spectacular organ music ever written, brilliantly played on a huge Ruffatti instrument in a superb acoustical environment: works by Jeremiah Clarke, Johann Walther, Claude Balbastre, Julius Reubke, Charles Marie Widor and many more - including the “Carillon” by Louis Vierne, which was not on the original release!

Reviews"This release, with its slightly atypical cross section of organ repertorie, is both a celebration of the fine 1970 Ruffatti instrument that graces St. Mary's Cathedral in San Francisco, and the digital skill and musical acumen of organist John Balka. The sound is up to RR's best. Needless to say, highly recommended!" “William Zagorsi, Fanfare
