Reviews

“Organ discs just don’t come better than this.” International Record Review, January 2008

“The organ has been captured superbly; waist-busting reeds, spine tingling tremulants, wispy flutes and crisp upperwork, all captured here in glorious technicolour.” Organists’ Review, January 2008

“Trotter, who will next year will mark 25 years as Birmingham City Organist, satisfyingly employs the vast resources of the William Hill instrument to its full speaker-rattling capacity” Gramophone, December 2007
