The Organ of Westminster Cathedral


On this special 2-CD set 19th century repertoire is coupled with the works of one of the world’s first international organ virtuosi, Marcel Dupré, who gave the opening recital on the Grand Organ in 1924 and who shines as the leading light of the French school of organist-improviser-composers.

Royal College of Organists ‘Performer of the Year’ 2002, Robert Quinney enjoys a growing reputation as a dynamic performer, whose repertoire stretches from the sixteenth century to the present day. He served as Assistant Master of Music of Westminster Cathedral from 2000 to 2004 and is currently Sub-Organist of Westminster Abbey. His playing, as a soloist and in ensemble – has received critical acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic. This is his first solo recording.

Quinney’s technique is impeccable and his registration spot on BBC Music Choice

This is a great recording – I’ve no hesitation in saying it’s one of the best organ CDs you’ll ever hear – Gramophone
