Glorious acoustics of St. Peter Cathedral in Regensburg, Germany, greet the sound of the large organ built by Mathis (1989). The gifted cathedral organist, Franz Josef Stoiber, plays the unusual and attractive Renner work (perhaps the only recording of it) and improvises well. The Reger receives a fine performance as well.
