Notes & Reviews:

Ives, Buck, Gershwin, Parker, Rogers: most American composers of the late nineteenth century or early twentieth century were talented virtuosos in their own right and made it their practice to write most highly effective works for their own instruments and for their own use.

Rudolf Innig has already clearly displayed his fine interpretative feel for the special qualities of American organ music on his recording of organ compositions by Horatio Parker. The organ in the Boston's Methuen Memorial Music Hall is just the right instrument for such a program.

MusicWeb International, 4th September 2013
The present instrument as heard on this disc clearly has great presence and character although it has to be admitted that as heard here the sounds it produces are by no means all pleasant. The recording is forward and the range of volume is enormous.
