Notes & Reviews:

Andrew Unsworth is one of three full-time organists at the Mormon Tabernacle in Salt Lake City, where he participates in the daily recital series and accompanies the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. He made this recording on the organ at The Cathedral of the Madeleine, Salt Lake City.

American Record Guide, May/June 2016
This is a mixed program of oft-recorded pieces. The German masterpieces consist of the two smaller Baroque works. The organ is found in the Cathedral of the Madeline in Salt Lake City, built by Kenneth Johnson in 1992. It is beautifully recorded in a warm acoustic. Unsworth is one of the three organists at the Mormon Tabernacle and delivers clean, confident. Notes on the music and the specification of the organ are included.
