- Robert Costin (Organ)
Notes & Reviews:
Bach's 1741 masterpiece played on the organ of Pembroke College, Cambridge (dating from 1708). Performed by international organ recitalist Robert Costin, this is a thrillingly exuberant recording played on an authentic instrument, and the booklet includes detailed notes by the artist.
Choir and Organ
Costin's playing is honest and stylistically sensitive...The organ is the 1980 Mander instrument (with some pipework dating back to 1708) at Pembroke College, Cambridge; probably the first attempt in the UK to partially reconstruct a lost historic organ. Thirty-plus years later it sounds fresh, engaging, and well-matched to the ringing acoustics of Wren's chapel.
