Description

The Taylor & Boody pipe organ at Holy Cross College is a landmark pipe organ. It is played here by organist, James David Christie, who begins the recording with a spirited, vibrant performance of Bach’s "Toccata in D minor." The pipe organ shimmers and sings in Christie’s hands as its sound blooms in the generous acoustics of Saint Joseph Memorial Chapel. Christie’s innate musicality, delicate articulation and rhythmic agility bring life to the repertoire of the sixteenth- through eighteenth-centuries. His own transcription of Vivaldi’s Concerto in D major is outstanding.

 

This recording comes with extensive documentation: an essay about the pipe organ, notes on the music, stoplist and numerous photos.
