Format: DVD
This was the first of Priory's "Grand Organ" DVD series [so far Liverpool, York, Lincoln, Kings College, Canterbury and Exeter, with Salisbury in 2012]. Ian Tracey the Cathedral organist plays an interesting and varied programme with transcriptions as well as works for organ, fully demonstrating the scope of this wonderful 5 manual instrument. He plays from a detached console so we are given different views of hands an feet, and visual interest is maintained by views of the cathedral and its interior - often appropriate to the music being played - and views of Liverpool.
Composers include Bach, Handel, Mozart, Schumann, Mulet, Tchaikowsky, Lefebure-Wely, Edmunsen and Verdi (demonstrating the new Trompette Militaire to great effect)and others.
It goes without saying that the sound quality of this Priory DVD is excellent, with a choice of 5.1 surround or stereo sound, and one cannot help but be uplifted and deeply satisfied by the experience. The picture quality is also excellent with Priory's distinctive tonal palette in exterior shots. Three extras include Ian Tracey giving an overview of the organ demonstrating various stops and choruses, another where he talks about his connections with the Cathedral and memorable occasions, and a third where he talks about the programme. All in all an excellent production and highly recommended to all lovers of the organ. A bonus CD of the programme is included in the price as is an informative booklet.
The other DVDs in the series follow a similar pattern and can also be recommended. By the 5th [Canterbury] a valuable "Set-Up" option is included for checking the audio and visual settings on your equipment. Don't hesitate, buy it now! It should be available from the UK being a British product.

HASH(0x93eb8a68) out of 5 stars Superb DVD, but possible compatibility problems 3 Feb. 2012
By Jim Clark - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This is one of a set of DVDs created by Priory Records, all of which begin with "The Grand Organ of....." This DVD features the grand organ of Liverpool Cathedral. The DVD is actually a set, consisting of a DVD and a CD. It's a bargain. The DVD includes a wonderful concert, and a fascinating discussion of the organ and cathedral by Ian Tracey, the distinguished organist of Liverpool Cathedral. There is much video of the cathedral, inside and out, and some interesting scenes of Liverpool. The video quality is fine, and the sound quality is superb. The organ of Liverpool Cathedral is the biggest in Britain (I believe), and even includes a 64 ft stop, with lots of 32 ft stops. You will not do this DVD justice if you merely play it thru a TV, using the tiny speakers that typically come in TVs. Hopefully, your TV is integrated with a high quality sound system, with a respectable bass module, or "subwoofer," so you can experience something like the full range of sound provided by the recording. I found the musical selection very pleasing. It includes a powerful and moving transcription of Bach's Chaconne (BWV1004), a rarely heard Handel piece - Overture to the Occassional Oratorio, four lovely sketches by Schumann, Verdi's Grand March, pieces by the French composer Mulet, the organist's own arrangement of some Tchaikowsky pieces from the Nutcracker Suite, and others. It's a wonderful collection of music, performed with great skill and artistry!

Now the caveat: The DVD I received would not play in my inexpensive Magnavox DVD player. I really wanted to keep the DVD, so I bought a Sony DVD player, and a fancier Magnavox DVD player. The DVD would not play in them, either. It would, however, play in the following: 1. Several computers; 2. my neighbor's older DVD player, which is actually a DVD-VHS combo; 3. an inexpensive LG Blue Ray DVD player, which I bought for $50 at the Walmart Black Friday sale. I don't fully understand the compatibility problems I encountered, but now you are warned. The DVD I received was in the PAL format, and this may account for the compatibility issue. Note: The CD included with the DVD presented no compatibility problems.

If you can avoid the compatibility problems, you will have a real treasure in this DVD-CD combo.

HASH(0x945f29fc) out of 5 stars Well played but perhaps a few more showing off the enormous colour and volume this organ can produce 8 Jun. 2013

Well recorded. Given the enormous size of this instrument I would have preferred the inclusion of a few more pieces that showed off the full volume capabilities of this instrument.
