Notes & Reviews:

The British composer Richard Popplewell confirms in his notes what the listener hears right at the start: the rich influence of late Elgar and early Walton in the First Organ Concerto. Born in Halifax, Popplewell was Professor of Organ at The Royal College of Music for over 30 years and also served as organ accompanist to The Bach Choir. Composing has always been important to him, and this enterprising release will thrill all fans of British organ and symphonic music, especially with the renowned Jane Watts as soloist and Sir David Willcocks, the composer's first organ instructor, on the podium.
