 J Melvin Butler Soloist


Cathedral organist Mel Butler plays a program of French music, from de Grigny to Tournemire. Although it is a Dutch organ, the 1965 Flentrop is surprisingly well-suited to French repertoire.  With an abundance of reeds, beautiful flutes and six seconds of reverberation, the organ renders French music in an highly effective style. Mel Butler gives a superb performance, which is captured by our proprietary 24-bit recording technology.  Highly recommended!
 

"...a real gem."

Diapason - September 2001


"One of the finest pipe organs in the region, the huge Flentrop organ at St. Mark’s Cathedral is put through its paces by one who knows it well—Cathedral organist J. Melvin Butler, who dazzles here in an all-French recording that extends over four centuries. Suiting the season is the sparkling "Suite de Noels"of Balbastre; the Messiaen "l’Ascension" is beautifully done."

Seattle Times


"There was no doubt about Butler’s capabilities. His perfomances....gave ample evidence not only of his technical ability but his creative use of registrations."

Seattle Post Intelligencer

 


"This is a wonderful release from the Seattle based Loft Recordings... It’s so exciting to receive a recording of a marvellous organ, in a fantastic acoustic, played by a man who knows its every quirk, and recorded by a man who also knows it rather intimately, Loft Recordings’ owner is Roger Sherman, the Cathedral’s assistant organist. He has captured it to perfection, the organ just jumps out of the speakers from the very start featuring the horizontal trumpets in Balbastre’s Noel, Au jô deu de poubelle. Organ recordings seldom get more exciting than this – don’t miss it! "
