I purchased this album just a few weeks ago. Words cannot describe the instrument or the music. Exquisite, sumptous, orgasmic. Sends shivers down my spine. If you ever get banished to a remote desert island and are allowed only one CD, choose this one

Agreed,Jack. This takes first prize for my favorite performance and instrument.

I just ordered a copy of this from the Friends of the Wanamaker Organ. They apparently sell music on Amazon. I'm looking forward to playing it full volume in my car, a nice contrast to all the rap and rock music I hear in other people's cars. :)

Simply one of the best romantic organ recordings ever made! Kudos to organist Sykes and Bill Van Pelt (Raven).

Wow. What an amazing performance - "symphonic" seems much too small a word to cover it.

One of the best tracks in the entire OrganLive catalogue

When this comes on, I drop what I am doing to devote my attention to the complexity of sound. Glorious!

Such a beautifully mysterious work rendered perfectly on the organ!
