 A Grand Tour December 17, 2013 By Jerry R. (San Francisco, CA) See All My Reviews "This set is a great way to explore many organs in one package. I am on my second listening. This set will keep one busy and happy for a long time!" Report Abuse
 tour de force February 18, 2013 By J S E T. (West Grove, PA) See All My Reviews "Great organs recorded in great spaces giving bloom to these instruments is only one of the many points of interest in this set. The organists themselves, spanning a generation or two of teacher and student, are all noteworthy. The programs are wonderfully varied and include the expected repertory of the day from the UK with not a few forays into some unexpected territories. The sound is beautifully remastered and sounds exceptionally good in the digital format." Report Abuse
