Critics' Comments

Organists’ Review “Frederick Hohman’s playing has a deftness, a lightness of touch which lifts the music above its reputation of the last fifty years and demonstrates its worth as perfectly legitimate light relief in recital programmes.” - Paul Hale


The Absolute Sound ”The best CD of an American organ I‘ve heard so far” - Fox


The American Organist “he writes as if he had known the great man, and he plays as if instructed by the maestro with whom he so clearly identifies ...74 minutes of rich, beautiful sounds ...”


The Gramophone “...splendid performances of thoroughly enjoyable music on a mighty organ.”


The Tracker (Organ Historical Society) “Lemare’s music has a predilection toward the flamboyant. His, works, both programmatic and formal in structure, are entertaining, yet admirable for their musical qualities. They are enhanced here by the playing of Mr. Hohman. ... Mr. Hohman’s playing is full of the showmanship and rubato so appropriate for this music. His adeptness at registration, consistent throughout this recording, is most apparent in the subtle works... Mr. Hohman has presented one of the more enjoyable additions to the organ enthusiast’s collection recently heard. The Lemare Affair is an appropriate title. I think you’ll love this one!” - Karl Loveland
