Just jaw-droppingly excellent. An incredible performance.

The "view sheetmusic" link above is for the Concert Overture in C *minor* - a different piece. This is the correct link: http://conquest.imslp.info/files/imglnks/usimg/c/c9/IMSLP254881-PMLP413067-Hollins_-_Concert_Overture_No._1_in_C_major.pdf

This is not a perfect transcription as it is difficult to replicate the lightness of touch of strings. Nonetheless, the exercise has been well worthwhile, producing a lovely sound.

That organ does not seem to have a surplus of strings, for openers.

A real hoot and loads of fun. I can think of few other organists who would make such a superb job of playing W.T. Best, and this performance is a perfect example.

Mr Heywood's sprightly performance is most enjoyable.

Maybe it's just my reception, but I can't hear the fugue subject.

GREAT FUN AND A CLEVER DEMONSTRATION OF THE LOWER SONORITIES OF THE ORGAN. A VERY NICE CHAP TOO!

By: Brian on May, 25 2012

A superb organ in the hands of an utter genius. A really humorous piece and played with such a sense of fun

By: jfk1961 on Jun, 19 2012

LOL!

By: stlorganist on Apr, 22 2014

The wit and humor of this piece would enlighten the darkest of days!

This is a very whimsical work that will bring a smile to everyone's face

Many orchestral pieces lose character in transcription. This one retains the original score's vivacity and grandeur.

By: Brian on Mar, 23 2012

A reincarnation of Edwin Lemare at work. Pure genius and great fun - the whole CD.
