WONDERFUL!!!

By: dpardoew on Sep, 06 2013

This is a fabulous organ, well suited to a piece like this, which shows it off well. The arrangement is good -- it's amazing that one person can play a piece like this. I have a recording in which two organists do it, and between them they manage no better than Ken Cowan does here.

Is this an electronic or digital organ rather than pipe? The performance is spectacular, but something about the sound reminds me of something other than a pipe organ. If I am wrong, I beg your pardon, sincerely.

Wonderful stops : MONTRE 8' and the Voix Celeste: it's expression box is very effective unlike so many across the world that fail to do enough quietening, this one is superb. Expressive playing, sensitive and everything "just right."
