  • November 10, 2007 A good intermediate rendition of a stirring piece

    The arrangement here has potential for a good performer: it is somewhat simply laid out, but that is because the composer wanted a hymn-like progression with sostenuto-effects and of course the imitations of distant trumpet calls. A good performer can develop this effectively, and on pipe organ this...

    piece can be stunning (Play the trumpet calls and snare effects on reed stops to see what I mean). I think a good layout of a piece, like Debussy's "Sunken Cathedral" (of course on a smaller scale) that can really transcend things.

  • March 11, 2001 Pretty, but too much repetition!

    This is a wonderful piece to buy if only because just the thought of the movie will move your audience. A few parts are touching, but the rest has too much repetition and not enough heart. I guess the music isn't the same without the symphony. Anyway, it's...

    a fun piece to learn; you just won't be able to use it for a recital.
