About

This is a Christmas CD with a difference – Christmas on the high seas! The Welte Philharmonie music rolls used here were recorded during the great epoch of the giant ocean liners and are performed on the Welte Philharmonie organ in the Museum of Music Automatons, Seewen, Switzerland.

They cover many different styles, from traditional songs to pastoral pieces.
