Alison J. Luedecke Plays
Four Early Beckerath Organs in North America


"Alison's technique is superb, and her musical sense is first-rate . . . the pieces chosen are admirably suited to the instruments . . . engineering is excellent throughout," writes Victor Hill in the Feb/Mar 2008 Journal of the Association of Anglican Musicians.

Organist Alison J. Luedecke plays the earliest four large large organs built for locations in North America by Rudolf von Beckerath, a great light in the Organ Revival worldwide and much appreciated for the beauty and timelessness of his organs. Featured are the very large organs built for Cleveland in 1957, Pittsburgh in 1962, and moderately large organs built for Montréal in 1959 and Stetson University in 1961. Superb sound is captured by engineer Ed Kelly.
