Charles Tournemire

C.B. Fisk Opus 116

Charles Tournemire, L'orgue mystique: Cycle de Pâques, Op. 56: No. 24. Dominica infra Octave Ascensionis (prélude a l'Introit, offertoire, élevation, communion, postlude) performed by J. Melvin Butler at the Fisk organ of Finney Chapel, Oberlin College

This unusual recording features the new Aristide Cavaillé-Coll-style Fisk organ as it sounds in Finney Chapel at Oberlin College, and also as it might sound if it were in Chartres Cathedral. New recording technology makes it possible to create a mathematical model of a room's acoustics from measurements taken in the room itself. With sufficient computing power, a program can then place any sound (in this case, the sound of the Fisk organ at Oberlin) in the modelled acoustics.
