Notes and Editorial Reviews

Ben van Oosten has played his way through vast acres of French romantic music, superbly recording more repertoire than most organists could play in a life-time... It would be hard to imagine a finer version.” -- Penguin Guide

“Ben van Oosten’s performances can not be too highly praised. He is deeply committed, has a wonderful ear for sonority and detail... and every performance creates the thrill and spontaneity of live music-making, while the recording of all three organs is magnificent.”
-- Diapason
