Album Notes
This is a solo CD, recorded in August 2005, which showcases the newly completed organ at the Holy Trinity Anglican Church in Chatham, Ontario. It is a remarkable instrument, offering infinite musical shades within a compact 36-stop architecture. Most of the pieces are new arrangements of well-known orchestral works, recorded here for the first time. Highlights include three fantastic 'Troll' pieces by Grieg (great halloween music!), and a note-for-note transcription of the second movement from Beethoven's fifth symphony. Danses, both carefree and macabre, complete this wonderful recording of great classical music.

A real jewel!
One of the most excinting CD of organ transcriptions (and I have about 150 af this kind in my 1500 organ CD collection...) perfect playing, polished, with energy. The organ is a real surprise! It sounds like it would be twice in stop number! I never heard an organ so powerful with only 36 stops...apart the French Cavailé-Coll! Buy this CD! don't miss it!

Wholenote Magazine - John S. Gray

Beethoven would have approved.
This organ is the very antithesis of tracker-action purism, and so Edwin Lemare's 'Carmen Fantasia' seems just the right things to do. Dvorak's 'Humoresque' shines under these conditions. Lemare's version of Saint-Saens' 'Danse Macabre' will raise the hairs on the back of your neck. But the real surprise is the arrangement of the Andante of Beethoven's Fifth Symphony, in Smyth's own transcription. Beethoven would have approved. Smyth's playing carries a real sense of enviable breadth with these works, and there is joy, too.

A pipe organ party!
Southwestern Ontario organist Marty Smyth has a ball transcribing orchestral faves for his own instrument. Recorded at the versatile instrument at Holy Trinity Anglican Church in Chatham, this is a fine romp of music that is hard to catch in live performance.
