Sad that this organ is rarely, if ever used, and sealed up behind projection screens. All that money wasted on a huge pipe organ and now it's buried.

Too fast. The prelude misses the grandeur completely and the fugue is reduced to a series of showy glissandi.

Agree with Brian far to fast! while an exceptional instrument, the piece left something to be desired.

Seldom do I take a musician to task for their choice in tempo as music is a matter of interpretation,but, I must echo the previous comments on this occasion.

Well, it's a bit like taking an organ on a sleigh ride... I think the tinkly stops could be toned down a little so we can hear the parts better.

No respiration from the beginning to the end...

Glad that this organ was recorded before being buried behind walls.

I don;t usually like electronic organs but this is actually really really good!

By: ContraBombarde 32 on Oct, 25 2011

Despite what you might think from the Rodgers nameplate on the instrument, it is, in fact, a PIPE organ. The organ only has six electronic voices!
