Peter Banens

Classy organ playing!
Eugene Lavery's first organ CD, JOIE, is a tour de force! He plays the organ of Holy Trinity Cathedral in Auckland, New Zealand. Highlights are performances by French composers Messiaen, de Grigny, Durufle, Vierne and Mulet.

Nicholas Sutcliffe

An excellent collection of music from a great player
Between the superb programme notes, the varied and relevant selection of pieces, and the secure and clean playing, Eugene Lavery has created a CD that demonstrates his confident and capable grasp of the instrument. This recording is a fine example of the Holy Trinity Cathedral organ and Eugene's playing is worthy and suitable for such a mighty organ.

John Bozzola

Truly a Joie
What a joie it was listening to the various selections. The playing, of course, is superb and the audio quality is excellent. I was not that familiar with de Grigny. Now, "Recit de Tierce en taille" is one of my favorite pieces. This CD has become a valued part of my rather large collection of classical organ pieces. I highly recommend this CD to any lover of classical organ!
