Judith Bingham: The Everlasting Crown
Stephen Farr (organ)
Premiered at London's Royal Albert Hall during the 2011 BBC Proms, Judith Bingham's epic organ work The Everlasting Crown is here given its first recording. Based on a fictitious crown made up from real and famous gem stones, it is a work of amazing depth and range. Bingham draws on the mythologies and infamous owners of some of the world’s most precious stones, with each movement representing a different stone.
Celebrated organist Stephen Farr, who premiered the work, makes his Resonus Classics debut with The Everlasting Crown performed on the recently restored and impressive Harrison & Harrison organ of St Albans Cathedral.
