This is the second volume in a five-album series organist and composer Marcel Dupré made under the Mercury Living Presence banner, recorded in Paris over a nine day period in July 1959. Requiring shipment of an equipment-filled truck from the US, the sessions began at about 9 p.m. each evening and lasted into the early hours, a tiring experience for the 73 year old Dupré, whose hands progressively stiffened on the heavy key action of the great St. Sulpice organ. The series was a massive success when first released and these albums have remained popular for more than five decades.

This title is a high-resolution digital transfer of material originating from an analogue recording. It may be limited in bandwidth and dynamic range by the technology available at the time of its original creation, and is offered as a high-quality documentation of a historical release. These works by Marcel Dupré were recorded at the gallery organ of the church of Saint-Sulpice, Paris, between July 7 and 9, 1959, on 3-track half-inch tape, using three Schoeps M201 omni-directional condenser microphones. They were first released on SR90229. Recording Supervisor: Wilma Cozart Technical Supervisor: C.

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!
