The Organ of Westminster Abbey

£12.00

Robert Quinney performs a stunning recital of works by Elgar on the organ of Westminster Abbey. Quinney has been Sub-Organist there since 2004, performing for a variety of celebrated occasions including the Royal Wedding in April this year.

★★★★★ Magnificent – The Daily Telegraph

Performance ★★★★ Recording ★★★★★ Thoughtfully programmed, compellingly played, Quinney’s Elgar entices – BBC Music Magazine

★★★★ The early Sonata in G (the only work here written for the organ) fares best of all, Quinney subtly exploiting its quasi-symphonic mien to good effect – Choir & Organ Magazine

Signum Classics’ recording is tremendously vivid across the whole spectrum and captures the Westminster Abbey atmosphere in all its blazing majesty – Gramophone
