Journal of the Association of Anglican Musicians “Here is a feast of Romantic organ music if ever there was one…. Because of the microphone placement, it may even be better than the real thing… A great organ and a great organist ideally matched in a spellbinding disc of music not found in such a mix elsewhere to m y knowledge. Fred Hohman’s notes are wonderful. Organ specs are all there. The pictureon the cover of Harry and his Irish setter, Sebastian at the console is suitable for framing!” – G. Donald Kaye
