The American Record Guide As always, the engineering by Pro Organo is excellent. …Both the Franck and Widor are treated intelligently with a sense of style, tempo, and registration. His Guilmant is appropriately fierce, and the Messiaen gives evidence that this performer grasps the mysticism and exultation that make this composer’s organ music so unique. – Metz, Jan / Feb 2010
