The tape is a concert given by Claude Murphree who served as the University of Florida Organist from 1925 until his death in 1958. He was a skilled organist and gave many concerts at the University of Florida on the Anderson Memorial Organ as well as in other locations. The program on this tape includes the following compositions: Sonata No. 1, in A Minor by Felix Borowski, Prelude and Fugue in A Minor by J.S. Bach, Symphony in B Minor by Alee Rowley, Daguerreotype of an Old Mother by Harvey B. Gaul, Fantasy on Nursery Tunes by Robert Elmore, and Sonata in E Minor by James H. Rogers. The sound quality is not particularly good but Murphree’s mastery is still evident.
