It is a curious fact that large and important areas of the organ repertoire are entirely peripheral to the main stream of musical history. There are, of course, glorious exceptions J.S. Bach for one; then Mendelssohn, Franck, Reger and Messiaen.
But who outside the organ-loft knows the music of Widor, Vierne or Dupré, Rheinberger, Karg-Elert or Howells, satisfying though much of it may be? yet there are great riches to be found in 20th-century organ music, beyond the traditional canons of the French and German organist-composers.
David Goode, who was born in 1971, is one of the leading organists of his generation. Having won major prizes for A.R.C.O and F.R.C.O. while he was a music scholar at Eton College, he became Organ Scholar of Kings College, Cambridge in 1991, graduating with first class honours and subsequently taking an M.Phil. with a thesis on Busoni and Pfitzner.
He was appointed Sub-Organist of Christ Church, Oxford in January 1996. He established an international reputation by winning the top prizes awarded at the 1997 St Albans Interpretation Competition, and subsequently the Recital Gold Medal and Encore Prize at the 1998 Calgary International Competition.
