    Thomas Trotter
    A Shropshire Idyll
    The Organ of St Laurence’s Church, Ludlow

    ' compelling aplomb…imposing… virtuosic pedal work superbly captured by director Gary Cole, whose framing of Trotter's hands and feet throughout the recital is exemplary.'                                                                  Choir & Organ July 2014 *****
