Here international virtuoso, Thomas Trotter (described by BBC Music Magazine as ‘one of the greatest living organists’), who gave the opening recital on the new organ in April 2008, demonstrates the range of this marvellous new instrument and the astonishing wealth of colour that can be obtained from its mere 15 stops in a programme of music from the sixteenth to twentieth centuries.
Total playing time: 66:30
Produced in association with Mander Organs and the St Giles International Organ School
Recorded on 21/22 August 2008 in St Giles Church, Cripplegate, London
Producer and engineer:Gary Cole
