Notes & Reviews:

The organ of Coventry Cathedral is a remarkable instrument. The stereo effect of having the organ on either side of the building has not only a dramatic visual effect but also a challenging and arresting musical impulse. The organ was completed in 1962 and overhauled in 1986. Tonally the organ is very similar to when it was first designed. Rupert Jeffcoat, a graduate of St. Catharine's College Cambridge, was appointed Director of Music at Coventry Cathedral at age 26. Jeffcoat has given more than 500 recitals and has a vast repertoire of organ music.
