CD Reviews

Music for Christmas - Richard Purvis
Brian Chase | Portland OR USA | 11/20/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I'm biased, since my parents had this record in LP form since I was 6 years old and I always loved it. I still have the disc and it is completely worn out, almost unplayable. So when I found that it had been re-issued on CD I immediately ordered it.... It's just as wonderful as I remember it, and better because of the digital transfer. Stunning arrangements and beautiful playing by Purvis on the organ at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco. If you love organ music and are tired of the purists who dissect music on baroque organs, you won't be sorry."
Not what I expected

"This CD was certainly not what I was expecting or hoping for. Instead of beautiful pipe organ music most of this CD is bells ringing very loudly and then the organ plays very softly. While listening to this CD I spent most of my time turning the volume down when the bells are ringing and then cranking it up when the organ was playing. When he is playing the organ it is wonderful. Unfortunately, that is not very much of the time on the CD. I feel I wasted my money on this one."
