Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Audiophiles will have to have this one."

"The DWS has made many recordings over the years for Reference, both under the baton of Junkin as well as Frederick Fennell. This may be one of the most spectacular due to its brilliant combination of brass, percussion, and one of the largest concert pipe organs. The venue is the already-acclaimed Meyerson Symphony Center in Dallas with its Fisk Concert Organ. Audiophiles will have to have this one." -- John Sunier,Audiophile Audition

"From the shriek of piccolo to the thunder of the organ's awesome 32-foot pedal stops, this will give the best stereo system a workout... Hold on to your subwoofer and when organist Mary Preston cuts loose,
Read more don't be surprised if neighbors complain about their furniture sliding across the floor." --Scott Cantrell, Dallas Morning News
