4.0 out of 5 stars VINTAGE FOX, 23 Aug. 2013
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Great Organ Works (Audio CD)
This is re-issued "VINTAGE FOX" from early stereo tape analog masters, but with no dates given in the brief printed cd sleeve note on the works performed, one must assume it is from the early 1960's/1970's RCA archives.
However having said that there are two particularly interesting and surprising recordings made here in LONDON on the old Royal Albert Hall Organ probably recorded WELL BEFORE the ceiling acoustic multi echo correction "mushrooms" had been fitted.
Now the RCA engineers seem to have achieved a mighty fine result from the old R.A.H organ of that day with Virgil Fox giving his all in tackling Bach's "party piece" the Toccata & Fugue in DMINOR plus a very nice interpretation of Bach's Little Fugue in G minor.
The other 'Sunday Church' pieces, some arranged for organ are not all that interesting but were recored in the
U.S.A on The Riverside Church Organ, NEW YORK.
All in all I give 4 stars for the oldish recorded sound but, as I have pointed out, an interesting find in hearing Virgil Fox playing on our lovely old R.A.H organ here in LONDON, UK.
