Album Notes
“Retrové”, also known as “Organ Estampie”, is from the 14th century Robertsbridge fragment. One of the earliest extant organ compositions, it is included early on in The Historical Anthology of Music (Harvard University Press). I expanded this piece, emphasizing the dance character of the estampie genre, adding a Pedal part and techno-influenced off-beat eighth notes, as well as adapting the form to a Verse-Refrain-type structure and employing vast crescendos unique to the pipe organ. This is the first single from the historic premiere recording of the Walt Disney Concert Hall pipe organ in Los Angeles.

this is awesome!!!!
Thank you Christopher!! this is another sign of genius- perfect blend between the old and the new-- the magic of early music along with amazing techno-sounds. And as always--- that impeccable, yet fluid technique....
