Discover the "perfume of the gods!" But there is more than perfume here in this "Ambrosia..." Here are 7 composers born in the 19th century, their music brought to life by Metzger's expressive playing and by the wonderfully voiced pipe organs heard here.
This is the 3rd CD for Nancy Metzger, whom one reviewer has described as a "highly competent and industrious performer." Each of the 3 Northern California organs recorded here contributes characteristics that are individual yet inherently appropriate for this beautiful and often sublime 19th c. repertoire.
As both an organist and a harpsichordist, Nancy Metzger has performed as a soloist on 4 continents and has recorded Suites & Treats on harpsichord and organ, and Wine for the Soul on harpsichord, prior to Lofty Ambrosia. She has been named the 1st recipient of the Mary Alice Cox Award for Lifelong Learning by Mu Phi Epsilon, International Music Fraternity, to aid in funding this CD project. She is experienced as a college music professor, recitalist and church musician, and has taught many organ and harpsichord students. She is widely known as the author of Harpsichord Technique: A Guide to Expressivity. Reviewers of her previous CDs have noted her "eloquent and articulate playing" and a "compelling and memorable listening experience."
