Notes & Reviews:

The instrument chosen for this recording, the magnificent Harrison & Harrison organ of St. Mary Redcliffe, Bristol was built between 1910 and 1912. It has always been regarded as one of the world's great "orchestral" organs, and as such, is perfectly suited for Elgar's music.

"The works are played on the four-manual Harrison & Harrison organ of St Mary Radcliffe in Bristol, built 1910-1912...This is a fine disc for anyone interested in late 19th century Organ music...Anthony Hammond plays with energy and virtuosity and brings the music splendidly to life. His registrations are always interesting and his control of dynamics is expert...Recommended, then, to organ buffs and others who want to hear this other side of Elgar."-American Record Guide
