    William Saunders and Peter Crompton
    The Grand Organ of The Royal Hospital School, Holbrook


    ‘If you like the sound of  a magnificent English organ being put through its paces by a couple of true enthusiasts ...this is right up your street... I can only say that this disc is just my cup of tea ’.    Gramophone October 2013

    'A superb disc!'        The Organ Club Journal 2013-2

    Released as part of celebrations of the 300th anniversary of founding of The Royal Hospital School, Holbrook, this recording brings alive the many colours of this splendid organ. One of the finest remaining examples of the work of British organ builders, Hill, Norman and Beard from the 1930s, set in a glorious seven-second acoustic.

    The English repertoire is played by William Saunders in his fourth recording for Regent, and the French works are played by Peter Crompton – Director of Music at the Royal Hospital School and award-winning organist.
