 a very satisfying performance July 30, 2014 By wallace v. (grand rapids, MI) See All My Reviews "Douglass Major is undoubtably one of the finest organists I've heard in a long time. He plays with assurance, and great dignity. He plays everything at just the right tempo, and the organ is allowed to turn loose often enough for full organ fans. The big trumpets blare, the 32 foot reeds sing their unfettered song of glory. I'd give this a 5, but the acoustics in this huge room were not well represented because the miking was too close, making the high mixtures strident, and unpleasant, but oh, what playing!"
