Having spent almost 5 years at the Durham College where William McVicker was senior organ Scholar, and having been constantly told about the legend that is William McVicker in the organ-playing world, I am finally glad to hear him play. This CD contains an inspired programme of music, which shows off beautifully both the range and capability of the instrument, and the fantastic talent of the organist. My particular favourite is Lefebure-Wely's wonderfully tasteless "Sortie in E flat", a marvellously fairground-style piece with some great opportuities for the organist to show off to his audience. A top class performance!

This is an excellent recording of some old favourites and some new ones too. Far from being too loud and too fast, this is well judged, musical playing and an excellent introduction to the wonderful variety of music written for the organ.
If you want to hear playing that is truly too fast and too loud, then try any from Wayne Marshall! This is playing of the very highest order which deserves a wider audience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent selection, excellent performance 27 Jan 2011
Format:Audio CD
I may not be entirely unbiased because I know the performer, but regardless of that, this is an excellent performance of an excellent crop of favourite organ works. It's no surprise that ClassicFM chose these pieces - they always come up popular choices on their station. With Will McVicker at the keyboard, you'd find it hard to go wrong.

And the price is fantastic!

This is a great selection of noisy treats from the organ repetoire. All beautifully played by William McVicar and with lovely clear recorded sound. Tremendous !

The CD cover didn't look like it is shown here but that wasn't a problem. It brought delight to the recipient and that was all that mattered. It arrived in time for Christmas which was more than 3 weeks before the due date. Thanks

4.0 out of 5 stars Pleased.. 11 Oct 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Bought this to add to my collection as it contains some great organ classics. The down side for me was the sound quality - a bit hissy in places - otherwise great value!

Didn't know about this composer until I heard a piece of his music on Classic FM.I think it's fabulous & on this CD you get a good selection of his works.The price was amazingly cheap so it's outstanding value for the money.
