Notes and Editorial Reviews

On this new release, David M Patrick plays Guilmant’s Sonatas 4 & 7, as well as works by Vierne and Gigout on the spectacular Van den Heuvel organ of Katarina Kyrka, Stockholm. David M. Patrick who was born in Devonshire, England, is one of the most brilliant British organists of his time. He pursued his musical education at the Royal College of Music with distinction winning the Stuart Prize for organ in 1967 and going on to gain the coveted Walford Davies Prize the following year. This award brought him prestigious recitals at both Westminster Cathedral and Westminster Abbey as well as the honor of being presented to H.R.H. Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother. His early decision to specialize in the romantic and modern French repertoire Read more followed logically from his impulse to accept the highest technical and artistic challenges which the organ presents.
