 Well Played, but Disappointing June 29, 2012 By John O. (Auburn, MI) See All My Reviews "The CD "Jack Mitchener Plays Christmas Organ Music" shows that Mitchener has a fine talent, but in this case is not particularly inventive. If you are fond of straight settings, then this is for you. If you want to hear the organ let loose and played with verve and elan, this might not be you cup of eggnog." Report Abuse
