Critics' Comments

American Record Guide “Dorothy Papadakos became the organist at the Cathedral of St John the Divine in New York City in 1990. ... I was at a loss for words to describe this, so I lent it to a friend who played it for a group of young co-workers to see their reaction. They loved it! (In my generation, “Far out” would have been the term!) They were totally captivated by the colors, melodies, and interplay of sounds. I have listened to this numerous times and always find something new in each selection. ... There is entertainment, musicality, wonder, and magic. If you buy no other organ disc this year, buy this one.“ - Bond

The Living Church “Dorothy Papadakos is an admitted hugger of trees. In this unique recording, she expresses her love for all things green and growing at the console, in the enormous arch of the Cathedral of St. John the Divine. ... The whole is like the forest: Living things of many textures, shapes and colors..” - Patricia Nakamura
