Notes & Reviews:

For some reason, organ music of the time represented by this album (19th Century) does not appear as frequently as music from the two centuries before, or perhaps even the one following. This is strange; for one thing, consider how well suited the instrument is to performing Romantic literature with its ability to play interminable phrases. This fine album is especially welcome for this dearth of alternate choices, presenting some fine music performed on a remarkable instrument.
