Lincoln, Neb.--Hixson-Lied College of Fine and Performing Arts Associate Dean and Professor of Organ Christopher Marks has released a new CD titled “Two American Organ Symphonies One American Classic Organ.”
The CD includes performances of two major organ symphonies, Leo Sowerby’s Symphony in G Major and Edward Shippen Barnes’ Second Symphony, Op. 37. Both were performed on the 1959 Aeolian-Skinner Opus 1308 organ at St. Mark’s Cathedral in Shreveport, Louisiana.
The recording on the CD represents more than 20 years of performance, study—and some unpredictable mishaps.
