Christianity and the Arts “Timothy Smith is a worthy successor in a long line of distinguished organists who have graced the services of this landmark church. His innate musical approach to each work is matched by a secure technique and rhythmic verve that communicate immediately with the listener.” – Morgan Simmons

The American Organist “… this record makes the Riverside organ sound suitably grand, and Mr. Smith sounds thoroughly at home.” – Vernon Gotwals

The American Record Guide “The romantic moments – a fine Howells and Jongen, and a simple but effective Harris arrangement of the Elgar – are especially rewarding on this instrument. Rich string and solo stops supply the organist with an embarrassment of riches.“ – Metz – May/June 1998

The Gramophone “…splendid performances of thoroughly enjoyable music on a mighty organ.”
