Notes & Reviews:

"Merkel's music is a gem in the organ music of the 19th Century. It is an inspired synthesis of the melodic purity of Mendelssohn with the counterpoint and drama of Brahms without the cloying technicality of Rheinberger. It is virtuosic and glorious in its own right and definitely deserves more performances...Partington is a very capable player...the performances are worthwhile and superbly recorded." -Bond, ARG
