    What a wonderful sounding organ ...

    Imagine my glee as a parcel arrives from the US containing organ CDs (what else!).

    The Atlantic City monster is amusing
    St. John the Devine in NY is astounding but
    the stunning organ at Yale University really blew me away.

    What a fantastic instrument, such a diversity of stops for such a sized beast (small compared to Wanamaker or Atlantic).

    The CD is entitled "The Transcriber's Art" (so don't I didn't expect any original organ works, just transcriptions) and this is just FINE by me. Recommend it thoroughly. Anyone hear heard that wonderful Yale monster playing?

    Yes, many years ago (like 20 or so) I visited a friend there and we spend a couple hours with the instrument--I spent some time playing it. Orchestral instruments are not my favorite, but that is a spectacular example of this kind of organ design. I was very impressed and had a great time that day!
