Unnecessarily pedantic and plodding in parts, and that theme trumpet is sharp enough to cut steel. Fierce!

Oh, if you think that about "The" State Trumpet of state trumpets, for goodness sake, hop the next plane to NYC and hear it in person. Fall to your knees and give praise to GOD ALMIGHTY for the finest organ stop on this Planet - or any other!

Ah well - while the St. John's trumpets are, umm, divine, I'd rather give thanks to Noel Mander for the west gallery trumpets of St. Pauls. ;)

Was in NYC in May. State Trumpet removed for wall repair. Was very disappointed not to hear it. Original Skinner 32' Ophicleide no longer working either, repairs would require a crane to remove it and it's too expensive, so it's silent again.

I own an LP of this wonderful program and performance by MICHAEL MURRAY and have always appreciated being able to hear the Great Organ in my own home, all the way from New York City.

Glorious music on an equally glorious organ.
