“Consummate skill and artistry in treating the organ as a great orchestra” High Fidelity magazine.
“Murray’s performance and his handling of the immense resources of the Woolsey Hall organ are beyond superlatives. The shape of every phrase, the use of every color could not be more perfect”. American Record Guide
