Notes & Reviews:

"This music and its performance amply demonstrate Petr Eben's virtues - a quietly consoling religiosity, a respect for past musical traditions, and an unfettered, indeed often Messiaenic (the apparent misspelling is intentional), fervor that brings those traditions into new and refreshing musical realms... Recommended for all organists and aficionados." -William Zagorski, Fanfare

'Eben's music is uniformly well constructed and reveals the composer's fecund creativity... The performances here are exemplary. The Norwegian organist Halgeir Schiager is an extremely adept advocate of this repertoire. His playing is precise, colourful, rhythmically alert and sensitive to the structure of the music; above all it is highly virtuosic in its crisp attention to detail... In short, this disc offers a generous tribute to Petr Eben, and will be a 'must' for devotees of his music' (International Record Review)

'Recommended for all organists and afficionados' (Fanfare, USA)
