This is one of the most staggering organ recordings ever to have been made! Simon Johnson was originally sceptical about Prioryís Callum Ross suggesting to him that it would make an ideal recording in the vast acoustics of St Paulís Cathedral in London. The discovery of Peter Sykesí brilliant arrangement answered all the doubts that Simon Johnson had and he set about learning this incredible score.

The organ was, of course, a willing partner, and the notorious acoustic Ė so often the cause of debate in relation to musical performances Ė seems to help project the scale and metaphysical properties of Holstís original conception in a positive and dramatic way.

This is an organ recording not to be missed, captured sensationally by Paul Crichton.
