Thomas Trotter made a very good recording, although the organ (Klais) sounds a 
bit too "modern" to me for the piece. There should also be a recording by 
Christopher Dearnley. made in St. Pauls Cathedral in Londen which is 
excellent. When I heard that one on the radio somewhere in 1985-1986 (I was 14 
or 15) I was sold to the organ, and Reubke's piece is the *very* reason I 
became a professional organist. And this year I performed the piece myself for 
the first time, from the Peeters (Keller) edition. While studying I found that 
the original score has many directions that were omitted or changed in the 
Peeters edition. That was one of the reasons as well I decided to make a 
modern, good looking score that exactly copies all directions, dynamics, 
registrations etc. from the original 1871 score.

best regards,
