Notes & Reviews:

A disc comprising an most intriguing lineup of transcriptions for organ plus one original non-transcription composition. Organist and composer Jean-Baptiste Robin studied with the great organists Marie-Claire Alain and Olivier Latry and his himself a prominent member of a new generation of organ virtuosi. The transplanted and renovated 4000+ pipe 1929 EM Skinner organ provides a listening experience of immense power and sublime subtlety. Liner notes by Mr. Robin include full organ specifications
