I very much dislike this interpretation, too many alternances of too fast and too slow passages. Reeds are sometimes inappropriate.

A shame about the coughing. Must have been a recital in the depths of winter.

Horrible. Ghastly stop choices, and apparently it's "Clap-along-with-Bach" time.

When no orchestra would play the symphony, Fox made this reduction to organ alone. Then he had to relearn the toccata when he did get an orchestra. Marvelous; truly marvelous!

It is a pity that such a grand performance drowns the congregation's singing. The balance is redressed, and the playing rather less laboured, in Frederick Swann's magnificent tribute at the Virgil Fox Memorial Concert (Disc II)

Well many of us know that Virgil Fox was severely ill when he played this concert, so his "Laboured" playing is understood and justified. I find this recording and all of his modulations simply incredible!!!

He really got that audience on their feet and singing. How wonderful that this was documented!
