I will tell you there are a couple better, more-recent recordings of the Saint-Saens.

Dallas Symphony Orchestra / Eduardo Mata - Dorian Recordings (1994)
San Francisco Symphony / Edo de Waart - Philips (1984)

Organist on both recordings is Jean Guillou

Both are recorded in concert halls that have large pipe organs.
