REVIEWS

Under the able fingers of David Pipe the chameleon-like nature of the York organ makes the music shine. There is something here for everyone, from the ghost of JSB in the Brahms Prelude & Fugue via the quirky Jean Guillou version of the Liszt BACH to Pipe's own attractive transcriptions. The combination of highly idiomatic, characterful playing and a seemingly inexhaustible pallet of organ tone is totally convincing. Everything is clear and, despite the gloriously cavernous acoustics and a somewhat disparate lineage of pipework, Pipe and his producers have scored a triumph. Well recommended.
