Synopsis

Product Description
Internationally renowned concert organist David M. Patrick returns to the magnificent Harrison & Harrison organ of Coventry Cathedral with a programme of French romantic organ music ranging from Vierne's Carillon de Westminster to Guy Weitz's Symphony No.1 along with music by Saint-Saens, Dubois, Mulet, Durufle, Messiaen and Jongen's Sonata Eroica. David M. Patrick is one of the most brilliant British organists of this time. He pursued his musical education at the Royal College of Music with distinction winning the Stuart Prize the following year. This award brought him prestigious recitals at both Westminster Abbey and Westminster Cathedral as well as the honor of being presented to HRH Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother. When the Coventry Cathedral was reduced to ruins in an air raid in November 1940, the fine Father Willis organ of 1886 was totally destroyed. The building of the new Cathedral presented the opportunity for a brand new organ to match it. Messrs Harrison & Harrison were appointed in 1952 and a provisional specification was drawn up. The organ was overhauled and upgraded to include solid-state technology in 1986/87.
