 Great organ, great music, great performance August 30, 2012 By Erica S. (Athens, GA) See All My Reviews "If you are a fan of organ music, this is a Cd worth getting. Thomas Murray is a top rate organist on a beautiful instrument. The track list is solid. For those unfamiliar with Fermin Swinnen, these are beautiful ealry 20th C. organ pieces written for this organ. There is another recording wth all 4 "Longwood Sketches" played by Peter Richard Conte which is also worth a listen." Report Abuse
