Notes & Reviews:
Clarence Mader (1904-71), considered to have been one of the finest teachers, performers and composers of his generation, and who was organist at Immanuel Presbyterian Church in Los Angeles for 37 years (1929-66), wrote some of the finest organ music of the 20th c. Jacob Benda, currently organist and choirmaster at Grace Episcopal Church in St. Francisville, Louisiana, has worked with this literature extensively; on this new Centaur release, Music At Midnight: A Tonal Palette, he presents some of Mader’s finest work.
American Record Guide, March/April 2015
Overall, the record presents an important picture of American organ art in the 20th Century, and talented young American organist Jacob Benda performs with confident rhythmic stability and polished technical assurance.
