Product Description

The famous recordings of all six sonatas (Op. 65) that, when released as audiophile LPs in the 1970s, received the highest praise for the playing, sound, and the magnificent organs: the 3m E. & G. G. Hook of 1854 at the Hook brothers’ home church in Jamaica Plain (now a part of Boston) and the wonderful 1857 W. B. D. Simmons 2m at Most Holy Redeemer Church in East Boston. These two beautiful organs, entirely intact and almost contemporaneous to the sonatas, represent more than any other extant organ, anywhere, the sounds heard when these works were introduced to a spellbound England. Many illustrations in the CD booklet.
