Notes & Reviews:

The organs of the United States from the Colonial days onward were influenced almost entirely by the traditions of Germany and Great Britain. But after WWII, members of the military with strong musical interests often brought technical knowledge back that included aspects of the French school of organ-building. As the last decade of the 20th century arrived, organs with quite distinctly French accents began to appear Stateside. Such is the Fisk organ on this recording, an eclectic instrument which, just the same, has tonal qualities which suit this repertoire extremely well.
