What does he think he's doing!? It's supposed to be a slow stately MARCH, not a breakneck-speed run. THIS is how it's done*.Slow, stately, follows the musical phrasing indicated on the manuscript. And don't think that it's just me comparing Englishmen and Frenchmen again, because Wills does it the right way too.
*Aside, I love Ben Van Oosten. Almost every recording of Widor/Vierne/Dupre et al that I have is made by him.He's a genius and he knows how to interpret the music properly.His registrations are epic, even when he deviates from the registration specified.
