Meet Our Music Director (Organydd)
Album of Franck's music performed by David Enlow Print E-mail
 
The Welsh Congregation of New York City is proudly supportive of David Enlow's latest project, a new CD of David performing the works of Cesar Franck.
 
We are doubly proud, but not surprised that our Music Director's album has been greeted with rave reviews. The following is an enthusiastic review by French reviewer, Georges Cattin:
 
The interpreter of this Franck set is David Enlow, graduate of the best American schools.  He is a pure example of what the U.S. can offer, for an organist, at its best: perfect technique, inventive, flexible, vigorous musicality, free of conventions of registration that often make Franck's music so boring on the Old Continent.
