    We need a CD of this!!! This sound just illustrates the fact that M.P. Moller made some of the best pipe organs in the world, bar none. Both the Mollers and Daniels were family friends, so maybe I am a little bit biased. Still, I play Moller Opus 11712 regularly, and its calvacade of sounds still overwhelme me every time.

    Brings back memories of the FM-stereo radio program from the 1960′s “Great Pipe Organ Music From Great Churches” sponsored by the M.P.Moller Organ company! Anybody remember that program ? I had just acquired a McIntosh MR71 FM-stereo tuner, and it was wonderful. The beginnings of a life long love affair with the great organs of the world.

    Todd Wilson’s playing at National City Christian Church is tops–as he always is. Is there any chance that the recordings from this recital can be released on CD?
