Apparently mastered off a badly stretched tape, this is like fingers on a blackboard. I know the recording pre-dates digital, but the tape flutter overwhelms the otherwise excellent music.

not a great thing to hear first thing in the AM.

By: stlorganist on May, 19 2014

One would have been more than enough!

By: Tromba on Nov, 03 2015

I don't think Mr. Williamson liked Edith Sitwell very much...

By: Tromba on Aug, 25 2016

I'm curious how a track with a rating of 1.5 out of 5 with 10 voters gets on the playlist...

I didn't much care for this piece, but I don't think plays should be chosen solely on rating. It's good to hear a wide variety of works, including some that challenge the ear. This is one of the key reasons I tune into Organlive - to hear things I would never otherwise discover on my own.
