Product Description

75 mins of superb sound as only great organists like David Hill can achieve on the famous Henry Willis organ of Winchester Cathedral. Both French and German romantics are featured, as well as more modern English pieces, some Bach, and a popular transcription of the great tune “Finlandia”. Winchester is one of the most visited Cathedrals in the UK, and its records sell right across the country.  Also included are Debussy, Dupre, Franck, Mendelssohn, Saint-Saens, Sibelius, Walton, Whitlock Performance:starstarstarstarstar Sound: starstarstarnostarnostar  As he quits the organ loft of Winchester Cathedral after 13 years and goes interstellar, David Hill surprises with a disc for the cathedral-shop punters. Organ Spectacular is a welcome addition to his regrettably small discography, for here is a truly exceptional player, demonstrating a range of gesture only rarely heard on an organ disc. Admittedly the eclectic programming demands this; Walton’s Orb and Sceptre is made into a glittering display of technique, while Guilmant’s intriguing transcription of the slow movement of Debussy’s String Quartet is played with due introspectionTotal time: 75:00
