    Hi CT64,

    Lord & Taylor in Philadelphia was bought out and is now called Macy's. Lets hope that they never, ever do anything *rash* with the instrument i.e tear it down or divvy up the divisions for sale.

    Cheers,

    ...or, worse, modify it according to the precepts of the Äqualverbot.

    As for Tournemire's Victimæ paschali, two other fine Youtube versions are those by Jean-Baptiste Robin at St-Eustache, Paris, and by Peter Van de Velde (with the first few seconds missing) at Antwerp Cathedral (Belgium).

    I must say that my all time favourite recording of this piece is this one by Marie-Madeleine Duruflé. I suppose one “ought” to prefer Tournemire's original recording, but the fire and passion in Madame Duruflé's version really comes very close to it.

    Hi ACC,

    Yes, Monsieur Robin at St. Eustache doing Tournemire is a smashing version. I have this peculiarly ambivalent feeling about the St. Eustache organ in fortissimo passages. I remember hearing Maitre Guillou live at *St. Moustache* perform his work entitled *Hyperion* - In the fortissimo sections the organ sounded like it was *ripping sheet-metal and shattering glass*.

    Although, when the organist lets different solo combinations *dialogue* betwixt each other and different manual divisions then the effect is quite pleasing I must say.

    Cheers,

    I love the Wannamaker, I even bought the little booklet about it ... fascinating reading I must say. It really has the most heavenly string sounds, so ethereal (and that one too).
