Easily my favourite because of the composers and organs. Two composers I never heard before (those marked with an asterix)
All the compositions are gems, and I like every one them. The music falls in my favourite era, and get a gorgeous treatment by Lena Jacobson. The Organs I never heard before, and that actually is true of all instruments used on this box with 3 CD'S. A great pleasure it was to go through this, and I will certainly repeat the journey many times. The recordings are excellent throughout and the booklet is top notch too. After reading it you will know all about the history and technical details of the organs.
