Info & track listings
Father Sebastian Wolff has been a Buckfast monk since 1948 and has dedicated his life to the work and worship of that Devon monastery. Both his duties as an organist to the community in its regular cycle of prayer and liturgy and the undeniable beauty of the Abbey church have, over the years, inspired the creation of his music.
Buckfast enjoys an acoustic of around six seconds, which bathes any sound, be it plainchant or organ music, with an other-worldly aura which lifts the heart and mind of the listener to a spiritual awareness so in keeping with the intention of the Abbey communitys daily round of worship.
The music on this disc covers all the main liturgical seasons: Advent, Christmas, Lent, Easter, Pentecost, Trinity and Ordinary TimeJeremy Filsell was awarded an FRCO with all the major prizes at the age of 19, became an organ scholar at Keble College, Oxford, and went on to the Royal College of Music to study the piano.
He now teaches at the London Oratory School and at the Royal Academy of Music, performs extensively as a solo pianist and concert organist, and has made a great number of recordings.
