Review By Scott Cantrell,The Dallas Morning News,May 2001

"The 12 major organ works of César Franck are such staples of the instrument's repertory that it's surprising how rarely players really penetrate their romantic idiom. Modern interpreters either wrap them in literalist straitjackets or else pull and tug them to the point that they lose all coherence and urgency. Not so Eric Lebrun­KMr. Lebrun keeps the music moving even as he gives it the most natural ebb and flow - and breathing room­KThe organ provides precisely the sonorities Franck had in mind, by turns plush, piquant and brazen, and recorded sound is clear vivid and spacious."
