Tom Winpenny (organ)
Organist Tom Winpenny presents a unique recital programme of Stanford organ works from the James J. Binns organ of Queens' College, Cambridge.
Featuring four world premieres this album includes a mix of both well and lesser-known organ works by Stanford, including the Fantasia and Toccata in D minor and the Postlude in D minor through to the early Prelude and Fugue in E minor and the pastoral idyll By the Seashore.
A previous winner of both the First and Audience Prizes at the Miami International Organ Competition, this recording - on the unspoilt Binns organ of 1892 - is the first commercial solo recording to be released by Tom Winpenny.
‘The crisp and rhythmic playing of Tom Winpenny, coupled with a colourful use of the unspoilt Victorian Binns organ (1892) at Queens' College, Cambridge, brings these performances of Stanford's organ works to life’

‘The combination of instrument, repertory and Tom Winpenny’s immaculate playing is beyond reproach. […] a worthwhile and utterly reliable set of reference recordings; it is to the great credit of Resonus that it has taken on this project.’
International Record Review
‘[...] they’ve managed to place the microphones in an excellent position to get the full interaction of instrument and acoustic'
BBC Radio 3 CD Review
'Played with reedy bite on the Binns organ of Queens’ College, Cambridge, the music transports us to Stanford’s world: though both its chapel and organ date from the early 1890s'
