Notes & Reviews:

Even though the Christmas season is still a ways off, here is an outstanding disc to consider getting on hand a bit early! These works have been performed in every imaginable setting, from soloists and full choruses, and by chamber ensembles and large symphony orchestras to gladden the heart during the holidays. They sound especially grand on the John Jay Hopkins Memorial Organ as performed by William Neil. Organist for the National Symphony Orchestra, Mr. Neil is well known for his performances of traditional and contemporary organ music.
