Notes & Reviews:

Continuing its work with the rising stars of the early music world, CORO is delighted to release a brand-new recording by one of The Sixteen's principal members, organist Robert Quinney. The recording features a number of virtuosic works from Bach's early years, including one of the most famous pieces of organ music in the repertory: the Toccata and Fugue in D minor, BWV 565. Robert Quinney is Director of Music at Peterborough Cathedral in England. As sub-organist of Westminster Abbey, he played at the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton in April 2011.

Sunday Times, 4th August 2013
It is an organ of beautifully defined sonorities, well suited to the music. The programme begins with the D minor Toccata and Fugue, to which Quinney brings a remarkable freshness thanks to his flamboyant decorations.

Gramophone Magazine, Awards Issue 2013
The most distinctive feature is the way Quinney's authoritative distillation of the music never results in dry, academic essays - while, also, never playing to the gallery with maverick rhetorical effects...Quinney's Bach gets to the heart of the music with refreshing clarity and a communication born of genuine understanding.

BBC Music Magazine, Christmas Issue 2013
Several of Bach's greatest hits for the organ are heard here on an ideal instrument (Trinity College, Cambridge) in sober performances from Robert Quinney.
