Notes & Reviews:

Whitlock composed music ranging from orchestral fripperies for the Bournemouth orchestra to liturgically appropriate organ pieces for the church. For his last recording as Organist of St. Paul's Cathedral in London, "[John] Scott's playing is technically immaculate and his interpretations are intense and moving." - Gramophone

'Julian Millard has caught the St Paul's organ to perfection, setting it at the heart of the cathedral's sumptuous acoustic while offering a dazzlingly clear view both of the instrument's myriad tone colours and Scott's superb virtuosity' (Gramophone)

'In a word, then, these performances are exemplary. The technical quality of the recording is equally high ... This is a wonderful disc' (International Record Review)

'You have to have this - for so many reasons' (Organist's Review)

'John Scott's performance on the organ of St Paul's Cathedral are wholly sympathetic and convincing. The recording captures a good deal of the venue's ambience' (Fanfare, USA)
