    I was one of many who braved the bitter cold to hear the organ, and I was also one of the many who were disapointed in the choice of music. I know some left.So much more joyful music could have been chosen to display the beauty and grandeur of this magnificant organ. The piece from Sigfrid karg_Elert was a sleeper as was the preiere of St. Dunstan's Dream along with Intermezzo. Next time stick to "happy" joyful music, let the pipes and chimes sing out and stick with play and conducting rather than composing.
