Description

Organist Craig Cramer plays a cross section of music from the Baroque, Romantic and modern periods on the Fritts Pipe Organ at Saint Joseph Cathedral in Columbus, Ohio. He plays Reger's Second Sonata with great confidence and reserve of technique, tossing it off with ease and refined musicianship. Cramer has also selected some lesser-known works such as a Batalha and wonderful new works by Zahnbrecher and Martinson. The organ has 66 stops on 3 manuals and is very different from the specialized baroque pipe organ that Paul Fritts has typically built in the past.

 

The recording comes with an extensive booklet. There are detailed notes on the music, an essay by Paul Fritts on what inspired this pipe organ and how he designed it, a full stop list and tons of photos of the pipe organ being built and installed.

 

There still are a limited number of CDs available for this title. This recording can be downloaded from iTunes. You have the option to download this recording as a 16-bit WAVE file from Abeille Music in France.
