More Info:

The organ was a formative part of Edward Elgar's musical upbringing, and for a time he was organist at St George's Catholic Church in Worcester. The symphonic scale and distinctive themes of the First Sonata contrast with the more liturgical atmosphere of the Vesper Voluntaries, while the rousing Second Sonata is an arrangement of Elgar's Severn Suite for brass. This album comprises Elgar's original works for organ as well as the complete arrangements made by the composer himself and those made by four distinguished contemporary organists.
