    Peter Crompton plays organ favourites
    Grand Organ of the Royal Hospital School Chapel

    ‘a most enjoyable CD which will certainly be living up to its title of ‘Encore’

    Sydney Organ Journal Summer 2014

    '...there is sufficient energy and drama in Peter Crompton’s playing to keep the listener fully engaged ' Choir and Organ January 2015

    ‘...anyone wishing to make fresh acquaintance with old friends in the repertoire will find much enjoyment in this dextrous sign-off.’
    Organists’ Review December 2014

    An unashamedly popular collection of mainstream organ favourites, played on this large romantic Hill, Norman and Beard organ built in 1933 – a real period piece – and housed in a vast resonant acoustic! Favourite encores and virtuoso showpieces ensure there’s never a dull moment on this generously-filled disc.

    A former student of Noel Rawsthorne at Liverpool Cathedral, Peter Crompton joined the Royal Hospital School in Holbrook as organist in 1975. He was appointed Director of Music in 1984,  a position he held until his retirement in 2013. He is now Organist Emeritus enabling him to continue his association with the magnificent organ which he knows better than anyone!
