At first glance David Hills recital might appear to present more contrast than unity, and even to feature its solitary representative of the Baroque period as a mere incongruous observance. However closer examination of the repertoires history illuminates the train of thought behind such a programme.
David Hill is Organist and Master of the Music at Winchester Cathedral and one of Britains leading choral directors, in demand both at home and abroad as choir-trainer, orchestra conductor, and organist.
About the organ he writes: The tonal and mechanical design of Rosales Opus 11 organ is the result of a continuing desire to approach organ-building from an eclectic point of view, both historically informed and carefully conceived and executed It is, in my view, a remarkable organ, imploring the player to convey the message of the music and responding accordingly.
