This review is from: Michael Murray At The Cathedral Of St. John The Divine: Works By Franck, Widor, Dupré, Bach and Others (Audio CD)
I'm a big fan of Mr. Murray's organ playing. In fact I love it as much as I detest his fellow American Newman.
The acoustic of this huge cathedral is captured nicely on this wonderful CD ... especially the ear splitting State Trumpet (listen to tracks 1 and 2). There is a delicious account of Widor (one of the movements from Symphony 6 is perfect and makes me hanker for the whole cycle on this monsterous organ.
It's a shame that organ CDs seem to be hotch potch collections of famous music, but I think that's just the nature of the beast. Sadly, not ever piece on this CD thrilled me as much as the Widor, but that's just personal. I'll most definitely look out for more CDs from St. John the Devine as the organ is to be heard to be believed!
