Notes & Reviews:

Delphian stalwart John Kitchen has now served for thirteen years as Edinburgh City Organist and twenty-seven years as University Organist. In the latter capacity he has played for no fewer than 400 graduation ceremonies. The formidable Hope-Jones/Willis instrument in the University of Edinburgh's purpose-built graduation hall is as eccentric as it is eye-catching, and following its recent refurbishment, Kitchen has recorded this conspectus of the music he might play during or after one of those numerous ceremonies. From an anonymous student song popular in the eighteenth century to a serious and substantial work by the University's former Reid Professor of Music Kenneth Leighton, Kitchen's programme exudes pomp and grandeur on one of the UK's biggest instruments in one of the UK's biggest acoustics.

Choir & Organ, August 2016
This rousing, back-stiffening and celebratory recital features appropriately effusive and reflective pieces delivered with contrasting glee and gravitas... Kitchen's impeccable playing - a virtuoso display of pomp and circumstance - is perfectly framed by characteristically vivid Delphian sound.
