    French  Flavours 
    Paul Carr,
    Organ of St Chad’s Cathedral, Birmingham 

    "Throughout, the excellent tone of the three-manual Walker organ is shown off in all its glory: an instrument which Paul Carr has known since student days. There is plenty to transport you across La Manche, culminating in an astonishing run of Eugène Reuschel’s toccata-like Nuages which is as thrilling a conclusion to this recital as is its start."

    Church Music Quarterly June 2013

    The first solo recording of the magnificent Walker organ in St Chad’s Cathedral, played by Birmingham-based organist, Paul Carr, in his début recording.


    A brilliantly-colourful programme of French and French-inspired works, chosen to match the distinctively-Gallic character of the St Chad’s organ.
