The ‘last voyage’ of Oehms Classics’ resoundingly successful Britannic Organ series has saved the best until last. This reclamation of historic performances made on Welte Philharmonie organ rolls in the early decades of the last century offers one remarkable window after another into a long-gone era. Of especial interest is the debut of Welte’s first official recording artist, Marco Enrico Bossi, heard performing a quartet of his own compositions. Elsewhere, familiar names such as Eugène Gigout, Alfred Hollins and Edwin Lemare sit alongside bygone talents like Harry Goss-Custard and Herbert Walton in repertoire that ranges from Handel to Basil Harwood and Bach to Widor. A triumphant end to a remarkable enterprise.
