Review quote

This volume of thirty-seven pieces is a major new resource ... Most organists will already own some of the commonly used pieces, but it is practical to have them all in one volume. And there are more than enough unusual choices to make the book worth having. Kudos to both compiler and publisher for the best organ anthology (in both quality of selections and production) I have seen in quite some time. * Journal of the Association of Anglican Musicians *
