This is an Encore broadcast, in large part, of material previously available in September 2008 as Program #0836. Concert recordings were made at the University of Scranton’s Houlihan-McLean Center housing a 1910 Austin organ, Scranton’s Roman Catholic Cathedral of Saint Peter housing a 1979 Brunzema-Casavant tracker organ, and Saint Stephen’s Episcopal Church in Wilkes-Barre housing a 2003 Berghaus organ on February 25-26, 2006.
In appreciation of the several musicians who influenced him during his early years in Kingston, PA, Michael Barone dedicates this program to the spirits of Stella Pickett, Marion Wallace, and Howard Hallock, and to the continuing presence of Dorothy Turner and Robert Wech…with thanks!
