For centuries, Southwell Minster had been served by an organ on the beautiful pulpitum screen. Its task was to accompany the daily service, established in the twelfth century and maintained without a break ever since.

This recording features the new Nicholson organ which was installed in 1996. The programme on this CD has been conceived not only to be a satisfying concert in its own right, but to demonstrate how astonishingly versatile the organ is.

With some of these tracks first released on the CD 'Southwell Splendour', which is no longer available, this title is supplemented with two previously unrecorded works, A Festival Toccata by Malcolm Archer and A Southwell Suite by Christopher Rathbone which was specially written for Paul Hale to celebrate his 20 years as Rector Chori.
