Notes and Editorial Reviews

Christopher Herrick makes no quasi-intellectual claims for this album: its intention is to entertain. Power of Life contains twelve tracks of (largely) ridiculous organ fare all performed on the beast of an instrument that is the new Metzler organ of Poblet Monastery in Catalonia. If you like your organs meaty, but with a good sense of humor, this one is for you. Christopher Herrick makes no quasi-intellectual claims for this album: its intention is to entertain.
