William Bolcom - Free Fantasia on Oh Zion Haste and How Firm A Foundation

Jonathan Holmes, organ
Newcastle Cathedral Organ

He uses a much more forward registration than in any other recording of this piece I've ever heard.  I think the music more than stands up to it.  It certainly brings out the two hymns the piece is based on better than a more subtle registration.

I post this in loving memory of my old fried R.R. whose death I just learned about.   She was a saint in life and I don't have any doubt she is now, as well.
