I have this one on vinyl just as what is being played here. It's too bad it never made it to CD. Worse yet, the Hammond Castle Organ was in serious disrepair when I last looked into it.

Some good news and some bad news.These recordings did make it to CD. Check http://www.haydnhouse.com/organ_loft5.htm The bad news is this great organ is unplayable and the owners do not seem to care one bit.

Thank you. I "bookmarked" this address, so I could seriously look through the collection.

First time I quote 4 stars for hearing to a US organ ! Excellent interpretation. CM Widor, who loved the flutes would also love this ! Very expressive playing. Very good choice of stops all along this wonderful masterpiece.

Interesting organ, but this is just WRONG in sound and style - of all the organs to sound too "squeaky" when it calls for rich fonds.
