Notes & Reviews:

The choice of a hot air balloon for the cover of this recording is a reference to "Soar above," the motto that appears in the published edition of the Symphonies, Op. 13. Widor was simultaneously alluding to his descent from the Montgolfier brothers on his mother's side, and stating his vision of what the modern organ should be: symphonic in scale and of dimensions that should go beyond the limited horizons of everyday life.

" the Wilder compositions, in settings given them by Gil Goldstein, as simply sung by Heidi Grant Murphy, as subtly accompanied by pianist Kevin Murphy (sometimes adding Goldstein on accordion), produce a wistful aura of childhood innocence, playfulness, and discovery. I don’t want to be a sentimental sap, but the songs are so sure, so apparently artlessly handled that they are tender and deeply touching. And yes, they give me goose bumps. With Wilder’s plain music, they are just light ‘n’ lovely. They are light as in spare, or lacking "heaviosity." But, they’re definitely not superficial. Sometimes profound emotional experiences can come from seemingly simple children’s songs. Most heartily recommended."-Fanfare
