Notes & Reviews:

William Faulkes - England's most prolific organ composer - was one of the leading figures in a generation of organists and organ composers whose style of writing went out of fashion. His music is melodious, spirited, uplifting - a manifest example of the national confidence present in the early part of the twentieth century. The St. Mary's organ has the ideal color palette for Faulkes, and Duncan Ferguson is a compelling advocate, reveling in the music that speaks from and of the golden age of organ concert-going.

American Record Guide, September/October 2015
Ferguson offers a delightful program of organ music from a seemingly inexhaustible composer. Faulkes wrote for the concert hall, church, and even the home, for the beginner to the most accomplished recitalist. The music is melodious, spirited, colorful, uplifting - epitomizing the optimistic "Britannia rules the waves" spirit of the Victorian age. He plays on the magnificent 1879 Henry Willis organ in St Mary's Episcopal Cathedral, Edinburgh - a perfect instrument for this music. This is guaranteed to put a smile on your face.
