Choir and Organ Michael Unger, a former prize-winner at both the AGO and Alkmaar competitions, provides highly intelligent performances of the wide variety of repertoire on his disc. His versatility is matched by a new organ of supreme quality. … The organ’s chameleon-like charm is utterly remarkable … – Chris Bragg
