When this album was released as an LP in 1977 it quickly developed a cult following and became one of the most praised (and most controversial) organ recordings of the day. Many fans wore out their LP discs and could no longer find replacements, so it's time for the CD version. American concert organist John Rose (who back on earth is College Organist at Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut) with this album launched a whole new craze for the then nearly lost art of organ transcription playing.
"This may well qualify as the most exciting organ recording I've ever heard..It may even convert some who thought they didn't like organ music. Wow!," wrote Scott Cantrell, now music critic for The Kansas City Star, in the official journal of The American Guild of Organists. Stereo Review called it "exceptionally good...a treat for organ buffs."
Most of the John Rose discography centers on the music of the French symphonic school of composers from the 19th and early 20th centuries. He has performed professionally in ten countries on three continents and in 43 of the United States.
