Program and Notes
Frederick Swann in Hawaii, vol. 2
with Nyle Hallman, Harpist
Central Union Church, Honolulu

In this second recording made in Hawaii, Frederick Swann is joined by harpist Nyle Hallman, who also is the Organist and Assistant Director of the Choirs at Central Union Church. The 68-rank organ at the church contains pipework from the original 1924 E. M. Skinner and the 1966 Aeolian-Skinner organ.  In 1995, Austin Organs reworked the instrument, added ranks and building a new console.
As always, Swann has crafted a program to please, beginning with Bach's great Toccata in D minor.

Woodland Flute Call—Fannie Charles Dillon
Fanfare on the Agincourt Song (Deo Gratias)—Swann
A meditation on Brother James' Air—Harold Darke
Toccata on "Leoni"—Seth Bingham
Dialogue—Nicholas de Grigny
Adagio—Louis Vierne
March Solennelle—Charles Gounod (harp & organ)
Prelude and Fugue in C minor, Op. 37, No. 1—Felix Mendelssohn
Two hymn encores:
     Meditation on "Amazing Grace"
     Festival Toccata on St. Anne
Lei Aloha, Lei Makamae (harp & organ)—Charles E. King (harp & organ)
Scherzo--Cats—Jean Langlais
Blessed Assurance—Robert Hebble

5 of 5 Fred Swann in Hawaii Vol. 2 June 28, 2008
Reviewer: R.R. from Racine, WI United States  
I purchased a number of Swann CD's and after listening to them this one has become a favorite.  You might say this one is a sleeper.  Fred appears to be going into retirement so it might be a good idea to get a Fred recording while you can.  I rate this one 5 stars.
