There are many surprises here, but the middle section, the 5-voice "chorale," wins the prize. It starts out fairly quietly, and at a stately pace, but it builds and builds. When the 32' Bombarde makes its entrance, it sounds like an earthquake! This performance will not be to everyone's taste, but it is unforgettable.

Pity that the sound reproduction spoils enjoyment of such a memorable performance.
