Performer and instrument project very effectively in nice acoustics on this recording, with skilled and communicative playing, imaginative programming of interesting repertoire and an exciting modern organ. Alongside ‘standards’ by Bach, Schumann, Dupré and Tournemire is some Byrd (surprisingly working quite well here), a set of newish American hymn preludes, some ecclesiastic George Oldroyd and a riotous extract from Petr Eben’s Faust. This is a good recital of known and less-known music played stylishly on an interesting organ that must surely contribute much to the cathedral’s liturgy. Production is as ever excellent from Raven.
