This remastered tribute to four centuries of organ music by American organist James B. Welch was stunningly recorded by Wilson Audiophile in 1978 at All Saints' Episcopal Church in Palo Alto, California, on a 1966 Flentrop organ, a two manual organ consisting of 22 ranks and 1144 pipes.
176.4 kHz / 24-bit, 88.2 kHz / 24-bit PCM and 2.8224 MHz DSD – Wilson Audiophile Recordings Studio Masters

This album is a high-resolution digital transfer of material originating from an analogue master source. Due to the nature of analogue tape recording, it may contain artifacts or audio which uses a limited amount of the available dynamic range / frequency bandwidth of high-resolution digital audio. As such, it is offered as a high-resolution documentation of a historical release.

Produced by: Wilson Audiophile Recordings, LLC
Original recording engineer: David A. Wilson
Project manager: Daryl C. Wilson

Analogue to high definition digital transfer: Bruce Brown, Puget Sound Studios
Transfer editing: Bruce Brown, Puget Sound Studios
Sonic evaluation: David A. Wilson, Sheryl Lee Wilson, Daryl C. Wilson

Speakers: Wilson Audio Alexandria XLF, two Thor’s Hammers
Electronics: Apple Mac Mini, Amarra & Audirvana Plus, Weiss INT202, Audio Research DAC 8, Audio Research 40th Anniversary preamp, VTL Siegfried and / or D' Agostino Momentum amplifiers
Cables: Audioquest Firewire, Transparent Opus

For the session, Wilson used AKG 414 microphones in the hypercardiod pattern pioneered by the BBC, a 15ips, half-track Revox A77 with modified electronics and cabling and an Audio Research SP-3 preamp whose phono input was modified to a microphone input. With the AR's power supply separated and isolated from the chassis, Wilson says it sounded "dramatically better" than the stock unit.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
