3 of 5 Midnight in The Grand Court October 26, 2008
Reviewer: Michael Timberlake from Hurstpierpoint,, West Sussex United Kingdom  
It is unfortunate that some compositions on this CD result in unfortunate sound combinations emanating from this grand instrument. If you can overlook the several discordant excursions the majestic sound of this great organ is awesome. Mr. Conte's masterful demonstration of the hidden abilities of this instrument and the quality of the recording are superlative.
