Malcolm Williamson: Organ Music

Many of these recordings are the first on CD and there are detailed booklet notes by Tom Winpenny and full organ specification.

Australian Malcolm Williamson settled in Britain and rose to the position of Master of the Queen’s Music in 1975. A skilled keyboard player and a Catholic convert, he wrote for the organ throughout his life and these works reveal his deep immersion in religious music, initially inspired by Messiaen. Tom Winpenny’s earlier release of Williamson’s organ music was greeted enthusiastically.

The Sunday Times “…this disc, impressively realised by Winpenny, presents six pieces culminating in the grand Symphony for Organ… “

Bruce Reader in The Classical Reviewer: “… Tom Winpenny gives us some terrific performances…”
