    Dear Raymond, I am one of those who has been agitating for some coverage of organ-music CDs, and am grateful for this and the Montreal organist podcast of a few weeks earlier. Don't stop the other material, but do please continue to make time for the king of instruments. Both of these programs were very enjoyable, and I am grateful for your responsiveness – and for the podcasts in general. I have just listened to about twenty of them in one week (I had fallen behind), and though it was a long slog, I enjoyed the insights and discoveries, as I always do.

    Cheers,
    Christian
