This is the first ever release of this legendary performance!

This original release, engineered by Reference Recordings' own Keith O. Johnson, is from a live recording of a landmark sold-out San Francisco concert in 1976, in which Fox performs on the grand Ruffatti pipe organ in St. Mary's Cathedral. A thrilling program of Bach blockbusters for the organ. This is not a reissue!

A household name among organ fans, Virgil Fox (1912-1980) was one of the most beloved organists of the twentieth century making more than 60 best-selling albums over the years.

"The whole audience sat silent and attentive, transfixed by Virgil's dynamic and musical approach to the transcendent counterpoint of Johann Sebastian Bach... these 'Bach Gamut' concerts were tours de force, and I marveled at Virgil's stamina and prodigious technique." - Richard Torrence and Marshall Yaeger, Virgil Fox: The Dish

"He tossed off one after another of the monumental preludes, toccatas, fantasies and fugues with comparative ease, permeating them all with pure joy. The audience erupted with spontaneous praise after each of the mighty blockbusters" - Ted Alan Worth, Virgil Fox: The Dish
