 Powerful Music on a Powerful Organ November 12, 2014 By Jerry R. (San Francisco, CA) See All My Reviews "The organ at the National Shrine is a remarkably power organ. It is remarkable that the engineers who recorded this album were able to produce such a wonder sound in what must be a difficult space to record in. Mr. Swann plays the quietest selections with great sensitivity while giving the loudest ones great power without losing the majesty of them. I found this album to be one that I must give my fullest attention to truly appreciate and have enjoyed it a number of times and will in the future." Report Abuse
