The liturgical requirements of the Anglican Church vary considerably from day to day through the changing seasons of year; musicians must therefore adapt constantly to contribute in a meaningful way.
As a result, modern church organists are able to exploit the organ music of several centuries from around the world in pursuit of their duties and maintain a greatly varied repertoire.Churches and cathedrals in turn have aimed to install instruments of great flexibility.
Reflecting this, Clive Driskill-Smith presents a programme of varied origin and inspiration in which almost every piece can easily find its place in the musical life of Christ Church Cathedral. Clive Driskill-Smith has been hailed as a star of a new generation? (Evening Standard).
Critics have praised his blazing technique and unbelievable virtuosity (American Guild of Organists) and described his performances as intensely moving and truly breathtaking (Organo Pleno, Melbourne). He is currently Sub-Organist at Christ Church Cathedral in Oxford, where he accompanies the choir under the direction of Stephen Darlington and has played for several recordings, broadcasts and tours.
