Organ Music for Four Hands and Feet
-Fifth Avenue Flourishes-

Jennifer Pascual & Lynn Trapp
at St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York

Jennifer Pascual is the Director of Music and Organist at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York. She is joined in this recording by her colleague Lynn Trapp who is Director of Liturgy and Music at Saint Joseph Church in Baltimore, and an organist at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Baltimore. The recording features organ music for four hands and feet and is recorded on the pipe organ at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York.

The organ music they play spans a wide period of compositional styles. From works by Mozart to a contemporary composition by Ralf Bölting. There is something for everyone on this CD from standard organ literature to more well known works like John Philip Sousa’s “The Stars and Stripes Forever” to Richard Wagner’s “The Ride of the Valkyries”. There are some works for a single organist playing but many of the works were written as duets for four hands and four feet like Gustav Merkel’s Sonata in d minor. Orchestral works like Saint-Saëns “Danse Macabre” or Richard Wagner’s “The Ride of the Valkyries” take on a new dimension when played with four hands and four feet.
