Notes & Reviews:

John Nicholson Ireland's enormous talent enabled him to make great progress in organ playing quite early, and at the age of eighteen this English composer born near Manchester became the youngest member of the Royal College of Organists. He later held a professorship in composition there while also serving as organist and choir director at St. Luke's Church in Chelsea. Astonishingly, however, organ compositions account for only a small portion of his oeuvre - just enough for a CD program. All of these compositions born of the classical-romantic tradition are nevertheless distinguished by high quality. Stefan Kagl, the organist and choirmaster at the Herford Minster, interprets these multifaceted pieces - toward the goal of once again making this wonderful music known to listening audiences!

"Kagl, a Munich native, is an award-winning artist currently Organist and Music Director of the Herford Minister and teacher at the Herford College of Church Music; the instrument is a 4-65 stop Fortser & Nicolaus...The opening march is a textbook example of British marches, in three parts and perfect for civic or church recessionals. Alec Rowley transcribed the Elegy from Ireland's Dowland Suite. It has a quiet pensiveness that characterizes so much British pastoral music...A good addition to the English organ recording library, long overdue."- ARG
