© ℗ 2013 Resonus Classics

Resonus Classics is proud to release the world premiere recording of Giles Swayne's epic organ work Stations of the Cross. Making his Resonus Classics debut with Stations is the Edinburgh-based organist Simon Nieminski.

Recorded on the 2007 Matthew Copley organ of St Mary's Metropolitan Cathedral in Edinburgh - where Simon is the resident organist - this extensive solo work is at the pinnacle of virtuosic organ repertoire, with each of the fourteen movements representing an episode in the story of the Passion of Christ.

Composed during autumn 2004 and early 2005, and at one hour in length, Stations is one of the most significant and substantial organ works to have been commissioned in recent times. Focusing particularly on those human aspects of the Passion most important to Swayne, he has created an intensely powerful and descriptive work that surely ranks among the most important works of the organ repertoire.

Reviews
[Nieminski] plays supremely well; the instrument is the 2007 Matthew Copley organ of St Mary's Metropolitan Cathedral in Edinburgh, where Nieminski is the resident organist, and the recording, produced, engineered and edited by Adam Binks, allows us to hear everything in superb detail. Collectors of organ music will find much to appreciate here.
