Notes & Reviews:

Nine historic and modern pipe organs from the Bluegrass region of central Kentucky are featured on this recording. While noted for its horse farms and Bluegrass music, there are also a wealth of churches and institutions that house great pipe organs of historic and modern vintage in this region. Most of these nine organs have not been documented in professional recordings. This documentary recording project was undertaken in 2007 by Schuyler Robinson, professor of organ at the University of Kentucky during a sabbatical leave.
