Description: One of the giants of Victorian and Edwardian organ music as both composer (500 published works and more than that in manuscript) and performer, Faulkes is reclaimed late but reclaimed by this 75-minute recital of large scale orchestral-style works interleaved with the short, melodious pieces intended to charm the audience with their delicate colors and gentle melodies. Any true organ Romantic needs to have this fabulous disc! Duncan Ferguson (organ of St. Mary's Episcopal Cathedral, Edinburgh).
