Following on from the success of his recording of organ works by Stanford, organist Tom Winpenny presents the first complete recording of the organ works of father and son Lennox and Michael Berkeley.
Containing two world premiere recordings - Impromptu (1941) by Lennox Berkeley and Sonata (1979) by Michael Berkeley - this varied recital is performed on the renowned 1962/2009 four-manual Harrison & Harrison organ of St Albans Cathedral, where Tom is a resident organist.
Composed over a period of less than 50 years, this eclectic and fascinating collection of organ works also contains the Three Pieces for Organ, Op. 72, No. 1 and Fantasia, Op. 92 by Lennox and Wild Bells (1986) by Michael. Also included is the Andantino, arranged by Jennifer Bate from Lennox's Festival Anthem.
