Info & track listings
The Queens Free Chapel of Saint George within Her Castle at Windsor possesses a fine organ, built in 1965 to a design by the organist of the time, Dr Sidney Campbell. His excellent scheme was realised by the organ builders, Harrison and Harrison or Durham, with their legendary craftsmanship.
This programme is designed to illustrate the ingenuity of the designer and the skill of the builders by presenting three short recitals of favourite German, English and French organ music.
Roger Judd has been associated with the music of St Georges Chapel, Windsor Castle, since 1985, when he was appointed Assistant Organist. In this capacity he accompanies the choir for services in the Chapel, a daily round which has been offered almost uninterrupted since 1348.
He has broadcast with the choir on radio and television many times, and accompanied them on tours to France, Holland, Poland, Spain and Switzerland. He has also accompanied them on recordings of music by Hubert Parry, Thomas Tomkins and John Tavener.
