Program and Notes
Few pipe organs in history have received as much attention as the iconic "Hazel,"  the organ of Christ Cathedral (Garden Grove, CA), formerly the Crystal Cathedral. David Ball's performance takes full advantage of this "King of Instruments'" potential. With more than 17,000 pipes, 300 stops and 300 ranks, Hazel plays from all four corners of the Christ Cathedral building give listener's a "surround sound" experience.

2 of 5 The Good & Bad February 25, 2023
Reviewer: Brad Cotton from FULLERTON, CA United States  
The Good:  great selection if Music. Talented Playing by David Ball...Great to see The Hazel Refurbished & Playing again.  The Bad:  in my opinion....I Was Dis-appointed in the Overall Quality if the Recorded Sound..    I felt the Recorded Sound lacked clarity of Tone & is more a Big Mush of sound. Comparing This New Recording to Those Gothic Did back in the 80's with Fred Swann..the older Recordings i find better..Tonally. Perhaps a Revised Recording Technique/Review is needed.

Response: listeners are welcome to check out the samples above to see if they agree with Mr. Cotton. The samples are MP3 files. The download versions offer much higher resolutions. One should also note that the organ and the church's acoustics have dramatically changed since the Swann recordings, which, by the way, are still offered in our catalog.
