When Mendelssohn first played the organ in England, he surprised his public with his virtuosity, which was completely unknown to the British on this instrument. His pedal playing was particularly impressive, and as a consequence England’s extremely conservative organ building experienced an unprecedented innovative drive.

The organ built by Thomas Hill attests to this watershed development. It was saved from demolition in St John’s Church in London and – only recently freshly restored – can now be experienced as a choir organ  in St Peter’s Church in Leiden in Holland.

Leo van Doeselaar now presents this marvel of English organ design for the first time on SACD – of course with works by Mendelssohn.
