I can recommend "Organs of New York, Vol I" Judith Hancock at St. Thomas
Church on the HESSOUND label.
Actually, the two Dupré pieces on it were re-released on the Priory
Label out of the UK, but it appears to have gone out of print.
I have not heard this one:
While this is a Christmas album, recorded by moi at St. Thomas in 1982
--the hiss is organ windchest noise, not tape hiss--the mastering
engineer still tried to remove a bit of it.
It has some nice snapshots of the organ and the noted choir is in good form.
Both the ProOrgano and the JAV recordings I've heard were good. I don't
know if ProOrgano is still carrying the Dorothy Papadokos recordings at
The Cathedral of St. John the Divine, but she did a great job in that
wonderful space. She left since there was no organ to play after the
fire maybe fifteen years ago.
For Theatre organs, the late Tom Hazleton Pipes of the Mighty Wurlitzer
at the San Sylmar organ in California.

Quality tape transfers -- even from hard-to-play tapes.
