Description: The 16 rolls made by Reger have been issued twice on LP but the detailed notes here make the case for their never having been done at the proper speeds and other faults in the original Welte technology have been corrected by computer for this issue. In addition, the second disc offers contemporary and later organists in Welte rolls of larger-scale Reger works than the composer recorded himself.
