Notes & Reviews:

Multi-award-winning organist Jonathan Ryan brings new light to stylistic influences on two major 20th-century works (Dupré, Willan), in a program that includes commanding interpretations of two premiere recordings (Moore, Wammes). A powerful showcase of the Stahluth/Jann organ, St. Martin, Dudelange.

American Record Guide, May/June 2016
Wammes has become popular with his 1989 'Mirror', and this piece is in a similar vein. Moore was organist of York Minster and is a prolific composer of organ, instrumental, and choral works. Pastorale was commissioned for this recording; it's a substantial work of some interest. The DuprT sounds splendid on this instrument, and Ryan delivers a convincing, unified performance. Especially notable is the 'Stravinskyesque' first movement, which he modeled on the DuprT's 1965 recording. Extensive notes on the music and organ.
