Ben Van Oosten in his element and in top form, on a magnificent instrument. There is some truly stunning music on this CD, and most of it is relatively, and quite unjustifiably, unknown.

I fully must agree ! I recorded complete widor symphonies at st. joseph in bonn-beuel, on a great french-styled oberlinger '81

Stunning. Absolutely superb, and played on a superb organ by one of *the* most accomplished organists alive.

All of the above. In my Top 20 of pieces on this web site.

The high level of resonance in this track is not unappealing for the piece concerned.

By: Granite Jet on May, 03 2014

Too much reverb and the organ sounds slightly out of tune at times, but still a track worth listening too. Oosten is an expert.

A strong piece of music. Crystal clear sounds.

By: Filea on Jun, 19 2014

Always a pleasure to hear pieces from this composer (Lemmens) who is not sufficiently known, although he taught Guilmant and Widor a. o. His teacher was Fétis, also not sufficiently known, according to me.

Wow! What a masterpiece indeed, and it sounds incredible on this organ.

By: Formentelli on Feb, 15 2013

Very well played ! Good registrations!!

By: MusicDonor2014 on Jun, 28 2015

My how human beings go in circles. 40 yrs ago the name Lemmons meant little or nothing to so many organists, even University Professors of our King of Instruments. Then, along come works not known before or anyone willing to "tackle" them. And, here, is obviously a masterpiece, in my humble opinion. IMHO
