Description

The pieces in this anthology capture the characteristic simplicity and sincerity of all of Whitlock's music. His rare facility as an organist shines through in his ingenious use of the instrument's resources and his instinctive feeling for colour and sound. Whitlock's style is personal and intimate and the pieces charming and melodious.show more
