"For the 2xHD transfer of this recording, the original 1/4”, 15 ips NAB master tape was played on a NAGRA IV-S Tape recorder – the same model as used in the original recording – using a hi-end tube preamplifier with OCC silver cables. We did an analog transfer for each HiRez sampling and A & B comparisons were made with both the original LP, using the Kronos turntable, as well as with the best available CD, using the Nagra HD Dac and dCS Vivaldi DAC, throughout the process." ~René Laflamme, V.P. Engineering
Organist Raymond Daveluy, a member of the Order of Canada, presents this album of works by Bach, Liszt, Franck and other composers performed on the prestigious Beckerath organ at Saint Joseph’s Oratory in Montréal in 1976. Daveluy, an acclaimed composer and music professor as well as musician, certainly knows the instrument well; he was named the first organist at the Oratory when the organ was originally installed in 1960 and assumed that role until 2002.
There was originally a warning on the back cover: "This recording contains powerful deep bass notes that might be harmful to a wide band system if played at high volume." Listener take heed!
