Sweet and entertaining
A sweet album! I can't say if Dr. Picher is better as an organist or as a trumpeter, anyway in playing is entertaining and is related to the real American organ school...that of Virgil Fox, Diane Bish... I was waiting for an American rendition of Bach BWV 549...and now I got it. Wonderful...and very similar to my rendition! It a pleasure! The final TE DEUM is simply trascendental! Buy this CD.
