St. Marks Organ Pipes Baltimore, MD

Several years ago I was asked to record the new Patrick J. Murphy and Associates organ at Saint Mark’s Lutheran Church in Baltimore Maryland.  It was up the street from where I was living at the time so I was happy to oblige.  James Harp is a fantastic organist and music director for this small congregation, as you’ll be able to hear on the samples below.  These tracks were recorded with an ORTF microphone pattern, Schoeps MK21, Sound Devices 744T.
