Organ Collection


2012 marks the 15th anniversary of the first release from the leading independent classical label Signum Records. Beginning life as an early music specialist (with a landmark release of the Complete Works of Thomas Tallis with Chapelle du Roi), Signum has grown since 1997 to a catalogue of over 300 releases across a wide range of genres.

The organ collection combines works by world class performers (including Simon Preston, David Goode, Jeremy Filsell, Naji Hakim, Joseph Nolan and more) recorded on organs from Freiberg, Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey & Cathedral, the Royal Albert Hall and more – all selected from titles across the Signum catalogue.

A sampler ranging from the boxy organ of Buckingham Palace to the magnificent instruments of Freiberg and Rouen; nearly as many players, too, and repertoire from Bach to Langlais – BBC Music Magazine

Among the plentiful gems here, David Goode’s Messiaen in Eton, Samuel Wesley’s Choral Song courtesy of James Vivian in London’s Temple Church, and Robert Quinney’s haunting performance of ‘Nimrod’ in Westminster Abbey especially stand out – Choir & Organ
