Review quote

It is an excellent collection for organists who don't use their feet, for organists playing on an instrument without pedals, or as extra repertoire for organists who might otherwise be using pedals, since the quality of many of the pieces here is so high. Furthermore, as the compiler suggests, "organists who are at ease using the pedals will find it entirely possible to introduce these at times of their own discretion." . . . Palm Sunday introduces the first of the
new pieces, a splendid Postlude on Sing Hosanna by Christopher Tambling. Other new pieces appear under Pentecost, with a Prelude on Hereford by Francis Jackson first heard at the funeral of his wife, Priscilla, and a Prelude on Skye Boat Song by Robert Gower himself . . . The range of music is
extensive, the editing is performance-friendly, the music setting generous in lay-out, and the price is good value for 29 pieces and 76 pages. * Duncan Watkin, rscm.com, March 2018 *
