Notes & Reviews:

"This is a great recording - I've no hesitation in saying it's one of the best organ CDs you'll ever hear... Alongside his impeccable performances, Quinney's greatest achievement is to produce music-making which really communicates itself to the listener. The quieter moments of Brahms and Wagner are magical while Quinney's account of the Die Meistersinger prelude is as joyful and as thrilling as any orchestral version. In contrast the anguish and passion of Dupre's Evocation brought tears to my eyes; the playful fairground-like Noel Variations had me smiling broadly; and the dazzling virtuosity of the Preludes and Fugues left me breathless with excitement. Let me say again: this is a truly great recording." -Gramophone (Editor's Choice)
