Description: Contemporary organ fanciers will find approachable music here, several pieces referring to styles of previous centuries and nothing noisy for the sake of noise. Eben tends to tower above the rest but maybe that’s just me being an old fogey. Worth a try at mid-price. Luca Scandali (2011 Dell’Orto & Lanzini organ of Madonna di Fatima Church, Pinerolo [Turin]).
