About

This double CD includes the complete original organ works of Ralph Vaughan Williams, of which two are unpublished and three are world première recordings.

There are also many organ transcriptions, some by friends and contemporaries of Vaughan Williams, others newly commissioned for this production, including David Briggs’ transcription of the Overture to The Wasps and Peter Beardsley’s transcription of The Tallis Fantasia. As a bonus, we include the first recording of Henry Ley’s Fantasia on Aberystwyth.

One of the foremost concert organists (and composers) of his generation, David Briggs enjoys a busy touring schedule that takes him all over the world. On this release he plays the restored 1912 Walker organ of Sacred Heart Church, Wimbledon - a sumptuous English organ with three 32 foot stops.
