An Appleton Anthology, Lois Regestein, organist


Lois Regestein plays seven elegant organs built 1812-1843 by Bostonian Thomas Appleton, the revered cabinetmaker who became the leader of New England’s second generation of organbuilders. Devoted to the task of documenting these exquisite organs located in five Eastern states (South Carolina to Maine), Lois Regestein has drawn much praise for her indefatigable effort that has yielded stellar results. The CD booklet includes notes and photos of each organ, notes on the vast array of repertoire, and historical notes by Appleton’s greatest biographer, Barbara Owen.
