Having incited critical fervour with his choirís wide-ranging recordings of music from John Sheppard to Gabriel Jackson, Duncan Ferguson Ė when exploring repertoire for a solo recording on Edinburghís ĎFatherí Willis Ė has revealed gems from a period in the instrumentís history that is seeing something of a resurgence.

William Faulkes, comfortably Englandís most prolific organ composer of all time, was one of the leading figures in a generation of organists and organ composers whose style of writing went out of fashion - music that is melodious, spirited, uplifting Ė a manifest example of the then national confidence.

The St Maryís organ in Edinburgh has the ideal colour palette for Faulkes, and Ferguson is a compelling advocate, revelling in music that speaks from and of the golden age of organ concert-going.

All but the Festival Prelude are premiere recordings.
