Notes & Reviews:

"It is probably safe to say that this collection of Victorian rarities is mainly for the hard-core devotee. All of the pieces take as a point of departure the melody of a traditional metrical psalm tune, a more recent hymn tune, a Lutheran chorale tune, or a plainsong hymn. Graham Barber enjoys a deservedly high reputation as an organ recitalist, and this recording demonstrates that he is not afraid to leave the beaten track of standard organ repertory." - Gatens, ARG

'a worthy celebration of the British organ tradition... rich, clear recordings' (Gramophone)
