Notes & Reviews:

Penguin
Sanger's account of the Widor No.5 is first class in every respect and is recorded with fine bloom and clarity. His restraint in registering the central movements prevents Widor's cozy melodic inspiration from sounding sentimental, and the finale is exciting without being overblown. The organ has a pleasingly wide palette of color, suprisingly well suited to this repertoire.
