wow, the organ itself sounds awful in this recording, despite the fine playing.

this is not a good representation of this wonderful piece of music. The organ playing is too pedantic, too slow, little or no nuancing or phrasing.It all sounds the same so there is no build up to the climactic moments.

Oh, well, what do you expect from the French for Bach... really it could be worse!

Wonderful, dynamic performance! Unfortunately it needs to be imaginatively reconstructed from the scratchy, low-fidelity recording.

See? You see how much *better* it is when played nearer the speed Widor intended?
