Notes & Reviews:

The Chicago Gargoyle Brass began in 1992 as a chamber group of faculty and students at the University of Chicago. By 2006, the ensemble had professionalized and established a residency at a major church with a full-time organist. The group has transformed itself into a specialized brass and organ concert ensemble, performing a wide variety of repertoire at a diverse range of settings.

American Record Guide, March/April 2016
The colorfully named Chicago Gargoyle Brass & Organ Ensemble hails from the University of Chicago, where gargoyles are found on buildings. Brass and organ is an often heard combination. The recording was made in two Chicago-area churches: Arcangel Catholic in Wheaton and First United in Oak Park. Their organs are quite different.

Notes & Reviews:
