David Hicken’s "Symphony Gothique" is part of a series of Masterworks For Organ and was originally released on the LaserLight Digital label in 2000. The British-born Hicken has recorded several exceptional solo piano albums of his own compositions plus a Christmas album, but his original instrument was organ, an instrument that he has not composed music for. Hicken recently re-released several of his early albums on his own Enchanting Music label, including this one. The eight tracks include organ masterpieces by J.S. Bach, Eugene Gigout, John Stanley, Alexander Guilmant, Charles Marie Widor, Pietro A. Yon, Leon Boellmann, Vivaldi, and Henri Mulet and were recorded in the Sacred Heart Chapel at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, CA. I have always been a big fan of “heavy” organ music, so driving down I-5 in CA with the volume cranked up was close to euphoric!
