New CD Track: Böhm “Vater unser im Himmelreich”

Thomas Dressler plays Georg Böhm’s ornamented setting of “Vater unser im Himmelreich,” a track from his new CD, “Thomas Dressler Plays the Paul Fritts Organ, Princeton Theological Seminary,” on which I did design work.

The Vater unser is an old Lutheran hymn tune setting of the Lord’s Prayer, played here on the beautifully expressive Swell Cornet and accompanied by the Great Principal 8′.

New CD: “Thomas Dressler Plays the Paul Fritts Organ, Princeton Theological Seminary”

Tuesday, March 20, I finished design work on a classical pipe organ CD by Pennsylvania organist friend Thomas Dressler. Called “Thomas Dressler Plays the Paul Fritts Organ, Princeton Theological Seminary,” the CD features German organ works by J.S. Bach, Böhm, Scheidt, C.P.E. Bach and others, ranging from the Renaissance to the Baroque period and beyond.

We are offering the CD for $15 direct from the artist, and pre-orders are being accepted now. Email for instructions on how to pre-order, or send a letter with your name, address, payment and other order information to:

Thomas Dressler Productions
P.O. Box 913
Albrightsville, PA 18210

The CD will be is available directly from Thomas around Easter 2012 and will be available at CD Baby [EDIT: Available now at], the Organ Historical Society, Amazon and other online venues shortly thereafter. MP3 downloads through iTunes, Amazon and CD Baby will be available within a month or so of their receiving the album.

Below are the front and back covers; however, ThomasDresslerCDCover2 and ThomasDresslerCDBackCover are high-quality PDFs for viewing.

First Foray Into the Blogosphere!

This will be quick because I have to run to class. Anyway, welcome to my new blog! Over the next while I’ll be posting design examples, maybe some thoughts of interest and other stuff, as well as using this as a testbed for another project.
