British concert organists boldly travelled the world as the twentieth century dawned, and the marvellous instruments their playing required were exported to the furthest points of the British Empire. The magnificent English Norman and Beard organ of Wellington Town Hall produced a ‘magic world of wonder sounds’ when first heard and is a delightful addition to the amazing series of instruments explored in Christopher Herrick’s ever-popular Organ Fireworks series.

Reviews

'Christopher Herrick's runaway success as a recording artist can be explained not simply by his technical brilliance but also by his sympathetic and imaginative approach to individual venues and instruments … This disc will be eagerly added to existing Fireworks collections, and may be savoured by new converts as the musical equivalent of a vintage madeira' (Classic CD)

'Though this is a disc absolutely not to be missed by all lovers of the Edwardian organ and its music, I would say that it rises above this narrow musical bracket and is of great musical worth full stop!' (Organists' Review)
