Reviews

'My vote for the best organ record of 1991 … another Herrick/Hyperion marvel' (Gramophone)

'Here is something truly spectacular. Hyperion's vivid recording of this magnificent instrument stands out as one of the best recordings of an organ currently available on CD' (The Good CD Guide)

'A treasure chest of sparkling jewels … polished and displayed to perfection' (Organists' Review)
The title of Lemare's Marche Héroïque suggests French models, but this piece, written for the blind concert organist Alfred Hollins, has an Elgarian stature as a reminder that Lemare was flourishing in London when the 'Pomp and Circumstance' Marches were being written.

Le titre de la Marche Héroïque de Lemare évoque des modèles français, mais cette pièce, écrite pour l'organiste aveugle Alfred Hollins, rappelle Elgar et le fait que Lemare prospérait à Londres à l'époque où étaient écrites les Marches «Pomp and Circumstance».

Der Titel Lemares Marche Héroïque deutet auf französische Vorbilder hin, doch hat dieses für den blinden Konzertorganisten Alfred Hollins geschriebene Stück eher Elgarsches Format und erinnert insofern daran, daß Lemare in London auf dem Höhepunkt seines Ruhms stand, als Elgars Märsche „Pomp and Circumstance“ komponiert wurden.
