GRANT BRÄSLER (ORGAN OF ST GEORGE'S CATHEDRAL, CAPE TOWN)
The organ in St George’s Cathedral, Cape Town came from St Margaret’s, Westminster (the “MPs’ Church” next to Westminster Abbey) in 1909. Parts of this instrument date from 1675, and has undergone several rebuilds, extensions and work up until 1988.
This first solo recording of the William Hill instrument gives listeners a timely record of one of the city’s great musical treasures. This great English organ provides a perfect, authentic sound world for the music of Elgar and Whitlock, as well as being remarkably versatile in other styles and periods. More >>
