I don't suppose anyone here attended, but the organ was very impressive.  I have never heard it played flat out as tonight, in both the Grande Choeur Dialogue and the Vierne Mass.  I think it would have been more than adequate in a middle-sized cathedral.  The toaster was nowhere by comparison.

Oh, and the choir was OK as well!
