Mark Laubach, 1984 Winner of the American Guild of Organist's national organ-playing competition, performs Cesar Franck's Final, Opus 21, from Franck's Six Pieces for organ, on the Berghaus organ at Grace Lutheran Church in the River Forest (Chicago), Illinois.

The video was made concurrently with recording sessions for Mark Laubach's second PRO ORGANO CD recording, entitled "FrenchFest" (Pro Organo CD 7052). This CD is now sold out in most places, and is only available through a few sources like Amazon, Ebay and through the church http://www.graceriverforest.org .

Mark continues to record for the Pro Organo label. His latest CD release is entitled "Mosaics in Sound" (Pro Organo CD 7210). Detail on this may be accessed by entering the product code 7210 in the Search Box at http://www.zarex.com/bin .

Mark Laubach has settled in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, and has served as the director of music and organist at St. Stephen's Episcopal Church for many years. Incidentally, the organ at St. Stephen's was recently renovated by the same organ-builder that renovated the organ seen in this video, Berghaus Organ Company.

This video was originally a portion of a 30-minute episode of the Midnight Pipes television series. Details on the original VHS Hi-Fi NTSC home video of this episode may be accessed by entering the product code 9008 in the Search Box at http://www.zarex.com/bin .

Due to the 10-minute maximum time limits on music videos on YouTube, and since this work exceeds 10 minutes, we have posted the conclusion of this music selection separately. It is found at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ge5Uh1...
