    This review is from: Heavy Organ at Carnegie Hall (Audio CD)
    Virgil Fox was ahead of his contemporaries in bringing Bach and the power of the organ to the masses, a fresh departure from the classical academician's rigid structure and expectations on the audience; the familiar insular approach to performance. Mr. Fox played Bach the way it was meant to be played-- with grace, power and stunning technique, with emotional delivery and thunder. Taking to the road and the roaring rock-concert circuit with a specially equipped touring organ was a natural outgrowth of his desire to share his passion for this grand music. None before or after him has trod such an intrepid path. The legendary Heavy Organ of Virgil Fox is well worth the listen-- set out some candles, dim the lights and turn up the volume. This one's a hair-raiser!
