This is the finest two-disk set of its kind on our Planet. The title says it all, though some of the music moves from quiet up through a Crescendo and retreats at its end to "quiet." Example: Bridge's "Adagio."

I agree fully with musicdonor. It is one of my favourite sets and it brings you to calm...

I don't understand the low-ish ratings on this music, this performance or this artist. Kindly point me to one that is a better performance. Sorry, Dr. Todd!

This is the only recording I've heard where the organist plays the Adagio with such feeling.

Brought tears to my eyes, especially on this hoiday.
