Description: "Great European Organs No. 80" is one of those quintessentially comfy-chair English recitals: eight variations on 16th and 17th century psalm tunes from England and Scotland - one of Dyson's last works (1961), another one by famous organist Harold Darke, a little wedding piece by the organist here and then his showing-off of the Hereford organ with his own transcription of the Enigma Variations. Have a nice glass of sherry with that? Organ of Hereford Cathedral.
