An ultimate favorite ...my father introduced me with his "Hi-Fi" blaring this album and this his favorite track which soon became one of mine. I've since been a fan of Widor and Biggs. Thank you!

Very articulate, almost choppy. His interpretation here could grow on me, but I tend to think of this piece a bit more legato and flowing.

I have the Lp version but don't recall the sound being so choppy from the disc. I'll be looking into that.

This piece, and this recording is why I was attracted to the organ and have spent 40+ years playing it. I'm thinking of actually learning it finally, I think it's about time...

Far too loud at beginning, noisy. Watch the volume compression, way too much

By: stlorganist on Jul, 17 2012

not too loud and agree with jfk1961 a true joy to hear his talents utilized on something other than Baroque. true genious!

By: nigh on Jan, 18 2013

Try the CD. It is sonically better than what is coming across here and almost as good as the original vinyl.

By: jfk1961 on Sep, 02 2016

'Tis wonderful to here E. Power play something other than the standard Baroque repertoire!!!
