This 1979 recording is a sampler of the last 250 years of French organ music, performed by Grace Cathedral's organist and choirmaster John Fenstermaker. Grace Cathedral is an especially appropriate setting for the performance of this music because of its fine, large organ built in 1934 and excellent acoustics.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
