Rejoice and be Merry! Music for Christmas by Briggs, Barber, Vaughan Williams, Harwood, Ireland / Paul Walton, organ

Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide, November/December 2013
The opening work - a big showpiece for the organ - is by Saint-Martin, who was between Vierne and Cochereau at Notre Dame in Paris. The closing piece is by Cochereau and is again based on 'Adeste Fidelis'. John Ireland's piece, 'The Holy Boy', has been heard in dozens of arrangements - most of them, I think, by the composer himself. There are even words to this composed carol: 'Lowly Laid in a Manger', seldom heard in this country. The organ at Bristol Cathedral is also largely a 20th Century phenomenon. It is one of the finest examples of the English romantic organ to this day. It is beautifully played and recorded here.
