Tom Winpenny (organ)
Following on from the success of his recording of organ works by Stanford (Resonus RES10104), organist Tom Winpenny presents the first complete recording of the organ works of father and son Lennox and Michael Berkeley. 

Containing two world premiere recordings - Impromptu (1941) by Lennox Berkeley and Sonata (1979) by Michael Berkeley - this varied recital is performed on the renowned 1962/2009 four-manual Harrison & Harrison organ of St Albans Cathedral, where Tom is a resident organist.

Composed over a period of less than 50 years, this eclectic and fascinating collection of organ works also contains the Three Pieces for Organ, Op. 72, No. 1 and Fantasia, Op. 92 by Lennox and Wild Bells (1986) by Michael. Also included is the Andantino, arranged by Jennifer Bate from Lennox's Festival Anthem.

'Resident organist Tom Winpenny clearly knows his way around St Albans Cathedral's magnificent IV/72 Harrison & Harrison and makes much of its versatility in an eclectic half-century-spanning programme [...] full bodied but beautifully detailed recorded sound add to the considerable pleasure'
Choir and Organ (5 stars)

'Another very welcome catalogue-gap filler from Resonus [...] these performances make a strong case for the works and the recording is excellent'

'[Winpenny] plays very well indeed and the clarity of recording (by Adam Binks) is first class'
Cross Rhythms

'It is very good to have this collection of the complete organ works of Lennox Berkeley together with works by his son Michael. Much of the music is reflective but the disc begins with a fiery Impromptu (Lennox). The final work is the exuberant Wild Bells (by Michael) which has echoes of the French Toccatas and carillons.'
