Product Description

Two-manual pipe organs of good design and voicing convincingly play hymns, service music, and literature. This new CD well demonstrates three fine organists at work on three different pipe organs, proving once again that the quality of a real pipe organ and intelligent musicianship trump artifice and the false promise of size alone. Great for organ committees to hear, the three organs range in size from three ranks to 25 ranks to 38 ranks.
