In 1988, Keith Johnson recorded this CD to be sold exclusively at St. Mary's Cathedral. Reference Recordings has now secured rights to issue it in a newly-remastrered HDCD edition with superior graphics and entirely new music notes. Hear some of the most spectacular organ music ever written, brilliantly played on a huge Ruffatti instrument in a superb acoustical environment - popular favorites and more than a few rarities.

The late John Balka, one of the most exciting performers of his generation, was organist and Director of Music at St. Mary's Cathedral when this significant recording was made. He was invited to perform at conventions of both the American Guild of Organists and the Organ Historical Society. His achievements for musical programming and direction during the 1987 San Francisco visit of Pope John Paul II were highly acclaimed.
