Notes and Editorial Reviews

REVIEWS:
American Record Guide (11-12/97, p.219) - "...A fascinating disc, this--two works written about 30 years apart but sounding 30 decades apart. The Mass, Opus 36, was composed in 1880 and is very easy to listen to. It plumbs no depths but has some haunting melodies and effective alternation of voices and organ....Widor fans will love this disc, especially because it includes the orchestral rarity."
