    Help identifying organ works

    Hi, I'm new to this forum. My brother, a church organist for the Philadelphia Cathedral-Basilica, recently died. I found a bunch of reel-reel tapes in his garage and am converting them to digital for his friends and relatives.

    However, I am not a musician and can only identify some of the pieces. I'm looking for help in this area.

    I have setup a web side for this purpose,, and the tapes are at
    there are directions there on how to contact me. There are about 7 concerts there with more to come.

    In exchange for the help. I can offer playable CDs of the music if desired. (in small quantities)

    Thanks in advance

    Hi Bill

    Welcome to our forum. I too have started to listen to the selections and have bookmarked it so that I can help identify some of the pieces.

    The recordings are absolutely splendid, considering they were on tape, and the organs are wonderful to hear.
