This sounds like what I believe to be an "english cathedral organ", not an neo-classical-would-be-eclectic one.

It manages to be round enough for Howells while still precise enough

for polyphony.

And that, without "over-doing" anything!

Again, one hears here that this "Repertoire-flexibility" has nothing to do

with stop-lists theories, but rather with voicing practice.


This is the kind of organ we need on the continent to broaden our

organ style's palette.


Best wishes,

Pierre Lauwers.

I'd been told that this church has a very dry acoustic and the programme certainly does reveal that there's not a lot of reverberation. Yet the organ still manages to make you think you're in a resonant cathedral. If it's not just clever miking, I'd say that Manders have pulled off quite a trick here. Very impressive.
