"…The sonic impact of this CD is tremendous: crushing, thunderous, tight deep-bass notes shudder the air and rattle loose objects. In fact, when played too loud, the sustained pedal notes blow the circuit breakers in my house." Stereophile Records To Die For – Larry Greenhill, Stereophile, February 2008

"…A delightful program that I highly recommend to all organ connoisseurs." – Atlanta Audio Society

Reviewer: B. Scheiner
The sound of this disc is first-rate, with lows not only substantial but also clean and detailed and an overall realistic sound that captures each instrument's characteristics, along with the ambience of each venue as well as can be expected in 2-channel. Especially noticeable is the dynamic range, which cleanly reproduces the softest and loudest sounds cleanly and accurately. It would have been interesting to see what the producers could have done with the rear channels in a surround release, but the recording stands up just fine as is. The music is an interesting and enjoyable potpourri, holding the listener's interest all the way through the program. An excellent release, recommended for all fans of organ music.
