Jeremy Filsell plays the 189-rank organ of the National Cathedral, Washington, DC, where he has been artist-in-residence since 2010, in compositions created during the cathedral’s first century by American-based composers, many of whom have associations with the cathedral. Opening in 1912 with a 27-rank organ built by E. M. Skinner in the earliest part of the Cathedral to have been completed, the building received a large organ in the upper church in 1937 as built by E. M. Skinner & Son and, despite several rebuildings to date, 43 stops remain from the original organ and 78 of its stops have been installed by other parties since 1963.

Despite the sonic shortcomings, this double disk is a bargain, and still highly recommended for those anxious to hear a range of pieces infrequently heard, and certainly not recorded often, either. The copious notes are very informative, regarding the various selections. All in all, a worthwhile addition to one's music collection, particularly those who love the pipe organ (as I do!).
