Description: The first five items listed above are tons of fun and not likely to be familiar to anyone. That's why this disc is here and this is its Records International-type material but the rest of the CD is equally enjoyable, featuring a few guilty-pleasure arrangements and even a set of serious Dupré items based on plainsong antiphons. All of it on a big organ of abundant resources and only just over two years old (in a 12th century monastery). Christopher Herrick (Metzler organ of the Poblet Monastery, Tarragona, Spain).
