Notes & Reviews:

This was the best selling organ CD of 1999, and set the stage for Conte's performances at the American Guild of Organist's national convention in 2000. Conte is by far the best-known American performer of orchestral transcriptions, and has the unique resources of the world's largest musical instrument at his disposal. "Music making of the highest order... rich in nuance and virtuosity... bravo Peter Richard Conte!" -The American Organist
