About

Judith Bingham is established as one of the foremost British composers writing for the organ. The powerfully atmospheric and evocative music in this recording richly demonstrates her gift for creating compelling works which draw inspiration from a broad range of historical, literary and artistic sources. The Åkerman & Lund organ of Västerås Cathedral is the perfect vehicle for this colourful programme, and both Heaven and Earth and Eternal Procession for two organs also feature the cathedral’s Fredriksborg choir organ. Tom Winpenny’s acclaimed recording of Bingham’s Jacob’s Ladder and other works for organ can be heard on Naxos 8572687.

This new addition to our popular Organ Encyclopedia catalogue follows on from organist Tom Winpenny’s recording of Judith Bingham’s Jacob’s Ladder and other organ works on Naxos 8572687, in which ‘Winpenny opens an illuminating window on Bingham’s richly coloured, programmatically driven engagement with the “king of instruments”’ (BBC Music Magazine). This new release also joins a Naxos disc of Bingham’s choral works including The Secret Garden (8570346) which was a Gramophone Editor’s Choice and described as ‘enchanting and involving’ by MusicWeb International.

Tom Winpenny’s ever-increasing catalogue of titles for Naxos includes Messiaen’s La Nativité du Seigneur (8573332) and L’Ascension (8573471), and music by Malcolm Williamson (857137576) played ‘with skill and commitment’ (MusicWeb International). Winpenny also directs St Albans Cathedral Girls Choir in recordings of music by Mendelssohn (8572836), William Mathias (8573523) and Michael Haydn (8574163).
