Notes & Reviews:

The "Toccata" is a piece intended primarily as a display of manual dexterity, and who better than the beloved Dame Gillian Weir to perform these works? The music comes from seven countries and ranges over 400 years, and the Birmingham Symphony Organ is shown off as the magnificent instrument it is.
