Description

The pipe organ at Saint Peter’s Episcopal Church in Morristown, New Jersey, was built by the Skinner Organ Company in 1930. This pipe organ was designed and finished by G. Donald Harrison and demonstrates the emergence of his distinctive personal style—keenly voiced 8' diapasons, a strong octave and brilliant mixture in the Great, a clear pedal, and a fiery Swell. This instrument might be considered heroic in its voicing and is very different from the pipe organs G. Donald Harrison would design only a few years later. These brilliant sounds roll down the long nave at Saint Peter’s, lending a stately grandeur to the repertoire here, appropriately paced by Richard Morgan. Dupré’s "Cortège et Litanie," Howells’ "Siciliano for a High Ceremony," and Franck’s "Choral in A-minor" benefit especially from this lush sonic environment.

 

This recording comes with extensive documentation: notes on the music, stoplist and numerous photos.
