I would like to add my thanks to ttle for the Sulek organ concerto. I have collected organ concertos all my music-appreciating life and this one is one of the most beautiful and powerful I have heard. My ideal of most heavenly would be a big all-out late romantic or early 20th Century concerto for organ and piano that would give me the shivers all the way through, like the beginning of the last movement of St. Saens Symphony 3 where the organ comes in full, then the piano joins in and they dialogue for the briefest of ecstatic moments. Oh my, let me take a chill pill.   Smiley
The Sulek Concerto is indeed a work not to be missed and this is true for Sulek in general.

Jacques Hetu's(1938 2010) Organ Concerto was an overwhelming musical experiece for me.
He is one fabulous Canadian composer who is tragically unsung(as are most Canadians), but I think his
death was too recent for his music to be well known internationally,..or at least that is my hope.
IMHO His epic 5th symphony is among the finest ever penned
