Delos is proud to announce its stunning second release featuring Samuel Soria and the magnificent Dobson Pipe Organ at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels in Los Angeles.

Organ Voices once again highlights the artful and virtuosic playing that has brought Soria to the forefront of this repertoire and places him rightfully in Delos’ exceptional roster of great organists.
