Editorial Reviews

OrganArts inaugurates a series of historic recordings by various artists with a CD of Virgil Fox's first commercial recording sessions. When Fox was 29, RCA Victor recorded him on the magnificent E.M. Skinner Organ in the Chapel at Girard College, Philadelphia. He plays his arrangement of Bach's "Come, Sweet Death," Healy Willan's "Introduction, Passacaglia and Fugue" (which he never recorded elsewhere), and ten more pieces he helped make famous. RCA released, on 78 rpm discs, only eight of the twelve works recorded. John Wilson has digitized all twelve pieces to inaugurate this series. Liner notes by Jonathan Ambrosino.
