Notes and Editorial Reviews

Gerard Brooks performs on the Willis Organ of Oxford Town Hall. Geoffrey Webber performs on the Organ of Magdalen College, Oxford.

This CD combines two recordings of the 1980s both made in Oxford. The first was an LP of Oxford Town Hall which was Gerard Brooks first recording for Priory of orchestral transcriptions (PR 186). The second was a cassette only issue of the new Mander organ in Magdalen College ( PRC 209). Due to space restrictions only about half of this recital is included. A CD then of contrasts and still, to our knowledge, the only commercial recording of the Town Hall Willis. - Priory Records
