Notes & Reviews:

A breathtaking collection of works as spectacular as Saint-Saëns' Danse Macabre and Wagner's Walkyries adapted for organ along with other great classics of organ music, Melanie Barney presents a thoroughly modern rendition. With the innovative recording technique in 24/192, this is one of Fidelio Musique's true audiophile gems.
