As the CD's booklet announces, this Priory disc is the first recording of The RAH organ since its recent restoration. True to form, Gillian Weir gives us an impressive performance of 19th & 20th century music, all very appropriate for this particular instrument. Unfortunately the recording engineers have not managed to come up with the goods on this occasion. As a result the organ sounds somewhat distant and lacking in punch. Liszt's 'Ad Nos' fantasia, for instance, which opens the programme, is a long way behind Jennifer Bates' stunning recording of it for ASV over 35 years ago. I've heard clearer accounts of Howells' third Rhapsody, too. There is, nevertheless, some interesting items in the latter part of this recital and how good it is to hear the RAH pipes sounding at the correct wind pressures, now that the badly-leaking trunking system has been renovated!
