  • Description

    Christopher Herrick takes a break from his series of 'Organ Fireworks' to present an inspiring programme entitled 'Organ Dreams'.
    Recorded in The Temple Church in the heart of the City of London, this disc includes works by Walford Davies and Thalben-Ball who consecutively held the post of Organist at the Church earlier this century. The organ itself is a vintage Harrison instrument originally built for a Scottish stately home in the 1920s. After the War it was brought to London by Thalben-Ball.
    This is a rare recording of the instrument, and the repertoire chosen by Christopher Herrick is ideally suited to both the organ itself and the acoustic of the church.
