I'm not sure what the original thinking was behind this production, because it comes across as patronising and simplistic.

By: Buster Highman on Sep, 19 2012

I heard this program in person, and it was trippy -- and not in the good way. It's a silly concept, and I'd be happy if I never had to hear it again. The music and its execution is fine....but the story.....oh, the story.

The spoken introductions are annoying. Why does a CD rated 1 1/2 stars even get airplay?

By: MusicDonor2014 on Oct, 20 2015

Buster - surprised the full name you've given was allowed on this station !! Rude and vulgar !!

By: TrichterRegal on Feb, 29 2016

If this CD is NOT the number one "most hated" CD on OrganLive, it surly is in the top 10! The spoken introductions destroy the music. Perhaps you could edit out the spoken intros? If not... consider getting rid of this CD all together.

REALLY!?

What a horrible, horrible, unsettling script! What is the point of this CD? I still believe it is in the top 10 of worst organ CD's ever recorded!

I wonder if the King allowed this spoken nonsense before his dinner music?

The speech is patronising and makes my toes curl, plus the organ piece is not titled "Pièce d'Orgue". It's by Bach, who was German. Why do people feel the need for this silliness?

Here's the story... one star. End of story.

Maybe the name of the new OrganLive station should be, "Any Album in the OrganLive Library EXCEPT 'Stories From The Human Village: War and Peace!'"

Narration in concerts is pretty cheesy...

Never heard such a bad interpretation with a so bad choices of stops. Horrible....... Please cancel!

By: stlorganist on Apr, 29 2014

IMHO must agree with Filea a beginning organist could have chosen better registration!

By: gemshorn on Nov, 10 2014

Horrible choice, yes, but no much other choice avail. The organ is not the right one for this Carillon, or the Carillon is not the riight work for this organ!

By: mrorgan on Jun, 19 2017

oh and those tacky bells (zimbelstern?) at the end of the pieces.... no no no!

By: TrichterRegal on Jul, 17 2017

But it's from "Stories From The Human Village: War and Peace!" The MOST despised AND repugnant CD in the OrganLive library! You mean the music is bad too! My Goodness! How Shocking!!!
