"...This beautifully engineered disc is another welcome release exploring much unfamiliar but worthwhile music; well worth more than the occasional hearing. Fairly traditional stuff in the best German tradition of organ music, maybe, but well made and utterly sincere. Excellent performances throughout, and the production is again up to Guild’s best."

Hubert Culot - MusicWeb - 28 April 2003


"...Mainly neo-classical in style, this is attractive music with strong linear and rhythmic structures, given sparkling performances by Bines. The organ, originally built in 1872 for the old Tonhalle, Zürich, is now rehoused in the fine acoustic of Zürich’s Neumünsterkirche. The recording quality is excellent, as are the accompanying notes."

Douglas Hollick - Choir & Organ - July/August 2003


"...Soloist, conductor and orchestra work well together to produce a sprightly, well phrased performance with a good sense of drama and motion, skilfully displaying the variety of musical textures in the score... The recording is of demonstration quality, so this release will appeal especially to organ aficionados..."

Paul Shoemaker - Musicweb - 19 June 2003


"...Christopher Hogwood has conducted another elegant performance; that is not news. What is new is this brilliant young organist, Jeremy Bines. He projects a thorough mastery of the piece and the organ-rare for one only 26 years old.

Bines plays the 52-stop, three-manual Kuhn organ from 1872 and 1926 built for the Old Music Hall in Zurich. it was restored and moved to the Neumünster in Zürich in 1995. The organ is well suited for the music. The technical aspect is superior.

Two of the finest organ-building firms in the world are Swiss. Having little acquaintance with Swiss music, I have wondered if composers in Switzerland wrote for their superb organs. In this release we hear that they have and have done it well. This is a wonderful introduction to Swiss organ music."

Blakely - American Record Guide - September/October 2003


"Organist Jeremy Bines joins forces with Christopher Hogwood and the Kammerorchester Basel for Paul Müller-Zürich’s Concerto for Organ and String Orchestra. The rest of the disc, recorded in the Neumunster, Zurich, features accomplished performances from Bines of works by the 20th-century Swiss composers Adolf Brunner, Willy Burkhard and Hans Schaeuble. The neo-classical style coupled with some lovely Poulenc-like harmony makes for an attractive CD; this may not be profound music but it merits repeated listenings."
