Notes & Reviews:

"Superb performances, superbly recorded, but the impact and power of the organ concerto is stunning. This is a wonderful issue on its own terms and also the beginning of a series that should be particularly enriching. One can hear models in Leighton's music; but whatever he inherited he made his own." -ClassicalSource.com

BBC Music Magazine
Richard Hickox directs superbly-paced and eloquent performances of this fine music.

Gramophone Magazine
Music as absorbing, humane and emotionally charged as this deserves a regular place in the repertory. John Scott acquits himself with distinction and receives a glowing support from Hickox and company. Chandos's gorgeously ripe sound and superbly judged balance add further lustre to what is a terrific disc.
