        I needed a copy of this piece in a hurry for a wedding. It arrived promptly; the music was clear and well-laid-out, making reading of it easy. I'm not an organist, but with a certain amount of adaptation, could render the bass pedal in combination with altered left-hand chords for a convincing keyboard performance. The people at the wedding appreciated it very much.

        The most uplifting piece that has ever been composed for the organ!

        I was not coming fresh to this music - I already knew what I was getting since I was only replacing a worn-out copy. I suppose that tells its own story.. The toccata is a great piece, accessible (to listeners) and full of exuberance, and remains deservedly popular for weddings. Not for the weekend organist perhaps, because it isn't the easiest thing in the world technically - but definitely worth the effort for anyone who can manage it.

        I am really pleased with this recent purchase and thoroughly enjoying playing it. It arrived in perfect condition. Thank you.

        A nice simple version of the Toccata by Widor. Don't expect great registration advice: there is hardly any. But the piece over all really makes you feel better, it is very well written and quite clear. Very very good deal.

        Printing is not as clear it might be, some of the spacings are cramped

        I purchased this for a wedding, as I only had the "easy" version of the Toccata and fancied trying the proper version. The music is well laid out, and easy to read. I would recommend this for anyone with a lot of patience!

        Had to adapt music as it was played on a two manual church organ and was successful. Print and notation is clear and easy to follow. By playing this on a church organ at the end of an Easter service, I have achieved one of my lifetime ambitions!
