Described as a "diminutive dynamo," Canadian organist Isabelle Demers performs her arrangement of Mendelssohn's Fifth Symphony on the newly-restored 1939 Moller-Whitelegg at Capitol Hill United Methodist Church, Washington, D.C. The producers would like to thank Rev. Alisa Lasater, Pastor and Jon Kalbfleisch, Director of Music for their support in this recording. Directed and edited by Geoffrey Silver, Acis Productions Ltd. Ms. Demers is represented by Phillip Truckenbrod, Concert Artists.

The organ at Capitol Hill United Methodist Church is an M.P. Möller Pipe Organ (Opus 6385), which was built in 1939 by that company in Hagerstown, Maryland. It has four Manuals and 53 ranks of pipes. The organ was designed by Clarence Dickenson and built by Richard O. Whitelegg. Whitelegg was one of the most renowned organ builders/designers of the early 20th Century.
