Notes & Reviews:

The young German organist Tobias Frank has recorded a radiant, effect-rich and lovingly performed CD at the opulently furnished English orchestral-romantic organ of Ely Cathedral (Harrison & Harrison 1908, boasting 80 registers on four manuals plus pedals). On the one hand, the disc contains original compositions of the high and late romantic periods, such as Herbert Howells' Third Rhapsody - composed in a night of air raiding during the First World War; and on the other, it presents a selection of exquisite transcriptions.
