With pipe-work dating back to the late 17th century, the organ of St Giles-in-the-Fields in London’s West End proves to be a perfect vehicle for this sublime survey of English organ music from Byrd to Blow, with pieces by Bull, Gibbons, Tomkins and Purcell adding poetic ballast of their own. A former organist in residence at the church, Robin Walker clearly knows his way around the instrument, delivering one pristine performance after another that accommodates each compositional voice with plangent eloquence. Excellent recorded sound adds to the pleasure.
