Christmas in the Grand Tradition
Review By JH110352,January 2011

I'll admit I'm an organ junkie. The Wannamaker organ at Macy's in Philadelphia is a favorite stop for me, and when you add the Philadelphia Brass to the mix, I'm in heaven.

This Christmas Traditions album is exquisite in the varied selections and in the quality of sound recording. I must have listened to it 20 times during the holiday season, mainly because I could not get to Philadelphia during the season this year. Peter Richard Conte, organist and artist at the Wannamaker organ, has a masterful touch with what must be a most difficult instrument to command. His arrangements of some of the world's favorite music are masterpieces. I love this album.
