 An Organ Selection November 23, 2012 By James Lowe (Owen Sound, ON) See All My Reviews "This compillation of organ music is played on a very good selection of instruments. However the pieces chosen are a surprise - since they do not give the instruments a chance to shine . I enjoyed listening to two surprise ones from Buckingham Palace and Eaton College Chapel. I have not heard either before and loved the sound , especially the Palace one. Both very nice indeed. Not a brilliant compilation , but all have been well recorded - so overall a good buy and gives a sampling of great Instruments played by notable organists ." Report Abuse
