Reviews

‘an astonishing range of organ technique and sonority … Weir gives a thrillingly dedicated performance … The recording is superb. It is as clear and clean as a whistle, immensely wide in dynamic range’ [Camilleri] Penguin Guide to Compact Discs

‘Incredibly virtuosic playing of Camilleri’s Missa Mundi … The dazzling performances of Dubois, Vierne, and especially Dupré have scarcely, if ever been beaten’ MusicWeb
