Notes & Reviews:

Renowned organist Stephen Farr returns to the Resonous label with a major survey of the complete organ works of the twentieth-century is composer Kenneth Leighton. This is the first time Leighton's complete solo organ works have been recorded together with the collaborative organ works, with appearances from John Butt, Chloe Hanslip and Nicky Spence in Martyrs for organ duet, These Are They Wodners for tenor and organ and Fantasia on a Choral for ivolin and organ. Recorded over three instruments, the monumental Rieger organ of St. Giles' Cathedral in Edinburgh, the city where Leighton spent most of his working life as a composer, is the centrepiece organ of the set, which also features the organs of Birmingham's Symphony Hall and St. Paul's Church, Knightsbridge, London.
