 Good Buy August 14, 2013 By Wil L W. (Richwood, TX) See All My Reviews "As with most all of the Naxos Organ Encyclopedia entries with which I am familiar, this CD is a good buy, because unfamiliar compositions are offered at low risk to purchaser. This allows one to find what one likes or does not like. For the organ music novice, this CD serves as a good low-cost introduction to Frank's organ works: it features an appropriate organ, good sound, and good organist. Armed with this knowledge, one can always upgrade if deemed necessary. This is very meditative French Romantic organ music. The Naxos budget price is an added bonus. Recommended." Report Abuse
