Van Pelt" <bill@organsociety.org> Date: Fri, 25 May 2001 17:14:22 -0400   Through an anomaly of mercantilism, a significant batch of superb, high-priced, Dutch CDs has come to the OHS Catalog to be sold for about $5 each for as long as they last. Please check them out at http://www.ohscatalog.org On the opening page, click on "Cheap CDs". This group will be listed at the bottom of the "Cheap CDs" page.   Two of these offerings are also featured on the opening page as well as on the Cheap CDs page:   The complete organ works of Messiaen are recently recorded on 8 CDs by the superb Dutch organist Willem Tanke (professor, Utrecht Conservatory) = playing the fascinating 4m organ built in 1921 by Joseph Adema (1877-1943) of Amsterdam as the largest organ in Holland. $25   The major organ works of Franck fill 3 recent and technically superb CDs with the very musical Bram Beekman playing the exquisite 1857 = Cavaille-Coll 4m of 58 stops restored in 1991 at the Cathedral of Saint-Jean-Baptiste in Perpignan, France. $15   Other titles include French works on Gregorian themes, the complete organ works of Henrik Andriessen, a fine CD of works by Karg-Elert, a recital of Romantic organ music played on the magnficent organ in the church at Maassluis (Holland), and retrospectives of the great organist and = improviser Klaas Bolt. There are more, as well.   Thanks for enduring the commercial message.   Bill
