for solo organ St Asaph Toccata was commissioned by Symphony Hall, Birmingham, as part of the Bach to the Future Series. The composer writes: 'The original title for the piece was Toccata Machine as I had an image of the gigantic Symphony Hall organ as some kind of mad machine uncontrollably spewing out manic toccata figuration.

The eventual title refers to the street in South London where I live, rather than the Welsh Saint Asaph'.show more
