J S Bach: Fantasia and Fugue in G minor, BWV 542
Played by Gillian Adams on the 1870 Cavaillé-Coll organ in the Parr Hall, Warrington, England.
In the words of her Husband, Bill Cheffers 'She tried to ‘pull everything out’ ! But we only came up the day before, so as usual, there wasn’t enough time to get used to the beast ! Especially with such an ambitious programme !'
Gillian studied organ playing with Professor Harold Dexter at the Guildhall School of Music.
She was one time Organist and Choirmaster at St Paul's, Wokingham and later, the Organist and Choirmaster at the Priory and Parish Church of St Germans in Cornwall.
The non-commercial recording was made in 1983 by Roland Dowd, who later transferred it to a CD.
Many thanks to Philip Davey for converting the recording to OneDrive.
