Notes and Editorial Reviews

REVIEWS:

"Well done! [Wallace plays] a well-balanced and enjoyable programme with refinement, projection and imagination... [The organ] only possesses fourteen ranks, but each is a gem.” – Paul Hale, Organists’ Review

“This is a rather good CD. The organ has some exquisitely charming sounds and the playing is at all times skillful and accurate. Listening to this recital is an enjoyable experience.” – Warwick Cole, International Record Review

“A modest but gorgeous example of mid-19th century village organ building... A nice piece of local history, and an undoubtedly first-rate instrument.” – Chris Bragg, MusicWeb

“Wallace demonstrates the finely tuned organ to its best in
Read more distinctively voiced counterpoints and luminous choral effects. Warm, natural recorded sound.” – Tom Hall, The Journal Culture Magazine
