4.0 out of 5 stars The Methuen Music Hall Organ, to Good Effect July 10, 2009
The three showpiece recordings on this disc are the Variations on America (Charles Ives), the Danse Macabre (Camille Saint-Saens) and The Stars and Stripes Forever (John Philip Sousa). Simon Preston takes full advantage of the Methuen Memorial Music Hall organ; you will not find better or more engaging recordings.

The remaining recordings are also very good, but they will not rouse you out of their seat. All are well-regarded pieces of music, some famous at one time, but not first-tier by today's concert standards.
