  • The organ loomed large from early on in Bach’s life. The foundations of his multifaceted career as a professional musician were clearly laid in the careful cultivation of Bach’ prodigious talent as an organist whilst he was still a child.
  • Colm Carey performs a selection of Romantic works for the organ, all composed in the year 1937.
  • A prolific composer and organist, Naji Hakim is truly one of the most versatile performer-composers working today, garnering praise from his numerous organ and composition competition prizes as well as an award from Pope Benedict XVI for his musical work in benefit of the church. This new recording with the Danish Chamber Players explores some of Hakim's works for chamber ensemble and organ, with performances from the Th. Frobenius & Sonner Organ of Vangede Kirke, Gentofte, Denmark. The Sakskoebing Praeludier are vigorously entertaining chorale arrangements. Concerto No. 4 stars the composer, firing off an explosively active finaleBBC Music Magazine
    By far the strongest, leanest work is the vividly scored Concerto No 4 for organ and chamber ensemble ... The finale is a riot of joyous dancing - Gramophone
  • The World Premier recording of two of Naji Hakim’s late st works entitled Sakskøbing Præludier and Glenalmond Suite are performed by the composer himself in this fantastic collection of organ works.
    Hakim arranged this programme to articulate the timbres of the new 26 stop organ at Glenalmond College, including works by Grigny, Boëllmann and Franck as well as opening with Te Deum, one of the most famous pieces by Jean Langlais.
  • In keeping with the historic nature of the Temple Church, the first mention of an organ there dates back to 1308 – although the organ on this recording, made by Harrison & Harrison, dates from 1954 (after the previous organ was destroyed during the blitz in 1941).

    The varied programme touches on a multitude of works for organ by English composers, all of which bring out different facets of this versatile instrument. The organist, James Vivian, has been part of the music department at the Temple Church since 1997, working first with the then director of music Stephen Layton before taking on the role himself in 2006.

    Including works by Percy Whitlock, Henry Walford Davies, John Stanley, Samuel Sebastian Wesley, Frank Bridge, Basil Harwood, Francis Jackson and Herbert Howells.

    We have had many fine recordings over the years from the Temple Church and it is pleasing to find these new releases up to the same high standards … a well balanced collection which will repay careful listeningThe Organ

    A fine London organ put to good use in a masterful recital … The recorded sound is absolutely first-rate. I loved this discGramophone

    The instrument is a natural match for English romantic and post-romantic composition … Vivian’s performance is nothing short of spectacularAmerican Record Guide

  • Naji Hakim has established himself as a performer and composer whose works are indelibly tied to his Christian faith. Recognised with a papal medal for his activities, these pieces are drawn from the span of his compositional career, combining organ music with string quartet and solo soprano.
  • The Psalms of David are arguably the portion of the Old Testament that has been enfolded most completely within the Christian tradition and its liturgies. Their messages of strife and joy, prayer and praise, resonate strong and loud alongside the teachings of Jesus, and find special expression in musical settings. This disc is an exploration of all these themes, as interpreted by composers over the course of four and a half centuries – with music by Allegri, Bernstein, Byrd, Parry, Purcell and Wesley. The Temple Church is one of the most historic and beautiful churches in London. Situated between Fleet Street and the Thames Embankment, its recorded musical history extends back to its restoration in 1841, although a church has stood on the site for over 800 years. This is Signum’s second disc with the choir, following 2010’s release of ‘The Majesty of Thy Glory’ (SIGCD225). Such enterprising and polished music-making deserves widespread currency. The engineering and editing are faultless, the booklet comprehensive and informative. Many choirs (and organists) could learn much from this jubilant release, which proves that the Temple Church Choir is among the very best. Strongly recommended - Gramophone The highlight is the beautiful version of Allegri's Miserere mei, Dues, with its solo treble soaring high - The Independent
    The polish of the choir's singing, combining a beautifully honed treble line with characterful yet restrained adult voices, is all recorded with fine balance. Copious sleeve notes add value to a very attractive release - Choir and Organ

    As heard here, the choir of 18 boys and 12 men has a highly impressive and solid choral tone well served by a warm recorded sound and excellent presence. They are clearly one of the finest choirs in England ... If this recording is any indication, [Vivian's] work with the choir is outstanding American Record Guide

  • An exceptional programme from two consummate performers, blending new arrangements of classical and baroque works with the premiere recording of Roger Steptoe’s Sonata for Trumpet and Organ.

    Graham Ashton is professor of Trumpet at Purchase Collage, New York, and as a performer over the past 25 years has given over 200 master classes and recitals in 21 different countries, recording for Signum, Nimbus, Virgin Classics and many more. Michael Matthes is a similarly esteemed performer – a tenured organist of the Cathedral of Troyes, France and a recipient of the prestigious French Ordre des Arts et des Lettres in recognition of his services to music.

  • Following the success of Joseph Nolan’s appearance in Music for the Coronation of James II (SIGCD094), he returns to Signum with a solo disc of organ music, capturing music from some of the finest composers of the instrument. With J.S. Bach’s famous Passacaglia in C Minor to Noel Rawsthorne’s Dance Suite, (with inspiration from Michael Flatley’sLord of the Dance) this disc certainly pushes the boundaries of organ music. Fresh from a tour of the USA in 2007, Nolan has found international recognition as well as his commitments as organist at Her Majesty’s Chapels Royal where he was appointed in 2004. A debut disc of a player demonstrating considerable musical and technical assurance, we should look forward to his next releaseOrganist's Review

  • A disc of spectacular improvisations based on the plainchant of the feast of Whitsuntide. This disc is one of the first recordings of the re-built organ at Gloucester cathedral Beyond The Score marks and contributes to the emerging “English Renaissance” in organ improvisation. As an art form, improvisation is greatly under-represented on compact disc; the number of English recordings can be counted on the fingers of one hand! By devoting an entire disc to improvisation we value the tradition as highly as that of the written-down repertoire. Long may it flourish!
