Notes & Reviews:

This fourteenth volume of Christopher Herrick's monumental Organ Fireworks series comes from the organ of Melbourne Town Hall. As ever, Herrick presents a cornucopia of virtuoso delights, opening with a bang with Lemare's outrageous transcription of the Grand March from Aida, given a new sheen by Herrick himself. Other works include pieces by living composers Iain Farrington and Paul Spicer, and examples of the best of the English and French traditions of 19th and 20th century organ writing.

'A source of perpetual admiration in this endlessly rewarding series is the sheer amount of repertoire Christopher Herrick gets through ... Some wonderfully entertaining highlights, some memorably revisited classics ... Superb playing of a truly enticing programme, a richly magnificent instrument and a top-notch recording; what more could you want?' (Gramophone)

Classic FM Magazine
The dynamic range and palette of tonal colours that Herrick conjures up and the exemplary clarity of the recording make this a highly satisfying release...it's a cleverly contrasted selection with something to suit everyone's musical taste.
