Stained Glass Buffalo

Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra Cds

"The BPO released a cd of works by Ottorino Respighi this month, featuring Church Windows, a piece that was composed for piano originally. Jeff Simon of the Buffalo News describes this piece, “Based on Gregorian themes introduced to him by his wife, it balances blazing orchestration with religious fervor in a way that superbly challenges any orchestra.” The orchestra recorded for this cd at St. Joseph’s Cathedral, and photographs of the building’s stained glass windows are the cover art."

It is available on their website, or you can find them at most local cd stores.
