The wording is rubbish (e.g. "the celeste suggests incest's the best") but at least the narrator has an acceptable voice.

By: felix on Dec, 15 2011

very annoying

By: Brian on Jan, 18 2012

What are we, 8 years old? Horribly patronising and infantile narration over an uninteresting experimental noise.

By: stlorganist on May, 01 2012

Nothing at all redeemable about this. Truly wish there was a skip, fast forward...

By: Kevinathome on May, 13 2012

Tis a bit long, but maybe in performance it would be more amusing. As an introduction to the sounds of the organ, at least it seems to catch people's attention!

By: stlorganist on May, 24 2012

OH NO! Where is my mute button!

Not to my liking, but certainly more melodic (I think??) than other things I've particularly disliked previously.

It's not to anyone's liking! This CD should be dragged out into the street and SHOOT!

Sounds a lot like an improvisation by Messaen. A less aggressive trumpet would have helped. I'm sure there are others on such a large instrument.

By: vause on Sep, 12 2011

Seems to be a grandly-appointed instrument - this particular piece does not exhibit this instruments more attractive features.
