Notes & Reviews:

"This program includes 'Landscapes of Patmos' for organ and percussion and 'Okna' for organ and trumpet. While I enjoy the whole program I especially enjoy the latter of these. Eben writes especially well for organ and trumpet. Yet again, Schiager plays wonderfully."-American Record Guide

'Hyperion captures the organ of Stockholm's Hedvig Eleonora Church superbly - an object lesson in harnessing clarity and spaciousness in that trickiest of acoustics, the church. Eben is now in his 76th year, and though it's possible his intégrale may yet be incremented, these five volumes of organ music document a highly original voice of our times. In short, they demand to be heard' (BBC Music Magazine)

'Schiager has certainly proved his credentials as an advocate of Eben's music... his impeccable articulation, deft handling of the splendid three manual, 58-stop Grölunds organ of Stockholm's Hedvig Eleonora Church and complete grasp of each score, establish this entire series as a matchless point of reference to Eben's organ music' (International Record Review)

'Halgeir Schaiger's performances on the fine organ of Hedvig Eleonora Kyrkan, Stockholm (Grölunds Orgelbyggeri, Gammelstad, 1975-76), are probing and, where need be, electrifying. He is at all moments at the service of a quite extraordinary composer. Percussionist Eirik Raude and trumpeter Jan Fredrik Christiansen are splendid, and Schiager is at the top of his estimable game. I await the next volume' (Fanfare, USA)

BBC Music Magazine
Cutting a blazing swathe across the disc is Okna, a piece inspired by the Chagall windows in Jerusalem, and importing the impressive talents of trumpeter Jan Fredrik Christiansen. Schiager rejoices in an untouchable technical perfection... Hyperion captures the organ of Stockholm's Hedvig Eleonora Church superbly...
