This entire album is plagued with mistakes and ameteurish playing. one star is being quite generous!

From an old man who grew up in the sticks: This could have been titled "How It Was Played." Mr. Flood's other album is much better.

Mistakes and poor playing abound in this piece as with every other track on this album! Words cannot express just how poor this entire album is! 1 star is being more than generous!

By: stlorganist on Jun, 07 2016

I seldom disparage an organists abilities...but this entire album seriously needs to be removed from the play list. His other album stands in stark contrast to this one.

This piece is best consigned to the past.

By: THEOLDGIT on Apr, 16 2012

Pure nostalgia

By: stlorganist on Jul, 10 2012

... this is just horrible playing,and even worse registration... to think you would print/sell an album that is this poorly produced is unbelieveable... sooo many blatant mistakes...personally I would be ashamed.

By: stlorganist on Jul, 16 2012

I appologize for hitting request... meant to read the other comments... my bad... OMG three blatant mistakes while typing this comment alone!

By: Ortolland on Nov, 21 2013

I fully agree with the above comments.

By: stlorganist on Apr, 30 2014

ok where is Chuck Barris when you need the GONG!!!!

Despite all the negative comments I still like is - Makes me smile

By: Tromba on Mar, 29 2016

This piece would best be relegated to the local merry-go-'round...

By: stlorganist on Apr, 28 2016

OHHHHHHHH NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! Such an embarrassment to the website. Processional March? Through Muck; Mire carrying a coffin... maybe

is it me or does this sound like a rank ametuer playing? I have heard nothing by this organist that warrents an album.

By: THEOLDGIT on Feb, 12 2013

Googled 'ametuer' Quite shocking

By: stlorganist on Jan, 21 2014

This is supposed to be a Festal March.. are they marching through the muck and mire? Way too slow!

By: stlorganist on Apr, 18 2016

UGH! PLEASE NO!!!!!! 1 Star is being generous.

By: Klavmann on Apr, 18 2016

Followed along in the score...no words can express how unprofessional this is. Did the guy just hit "record" and start sight-reading?

I love this nostalgia, easygoing piece from the past! I wish more similar compositions were being written, with similarly lush organs to play them.

OMG! Is this man playing in boxing gloves and clown shoes. That would be the only explaination for so many obvious mistakes. How, no WHY was this put out as an album? 8 min of my life I will never get back! I am sure Claussmann NEVER intended for this to sound like THIS.

By: jmmccabe1 on Sep, 16 2016

YIKES - THIS IS AWFUL. Remove this album please!!!! I thought this was a joke at first
