    Homage to Handel 
    Played on the magnificent Klais organ of Bath Abbey
    by Peter King  

    "this is a really fascinating disc"

    International Record Review June 2009

    "Karg-Elert's own Homage to Handel exploits virtually every tonal, textural and technical possibility of the organ, including the recently installed set of glockenspiel bells, in a dazzling expression of the performer's virtuosity."
    Editor's choice, Organists' Review August 2009

    "Peter King delivers a hugely imaginative and brilliantly executed celebration of Handel's 250th anniversary....kaleidoscopic colours and scintillating brilliance... King is on fire...a perfect recital, to be returned to often. "        Choir & Organ Sept/Oct 2009
