About

There are few recordings of this famous organ. Daniel Cook, sub organist at the Abbey, has rectified this with a CD of popular pieces to reflect the grandeur, pomp and ceremony that frequents the Abbey on Royal and other important occasions.

"this disc focuses on the organ and with Priory's hallmark understanding of the organ we get to hear this fabulous Harrison and Harrison in fabulous sound. Daniel Cook gives a whole new meaning  to the phrase 'Cook's tour' as he strides knowingly around  the instrument's 100 plus stops. All in all, a populist programme that does a little bit more than merely provide a superb sonic souvenir for the Abbey's countless visitors." - Marc Rochester, Gramophone

"a recital brimming over with panache, precision playing and poetry... the Pomp and Circumstance No. 1 rounds off a thoroughly enjoyable recital, Cook, Harrison and Harrison proving that three is the perfect number." - Michael Quinn, Choir and Organ, 4 stars
