’The playing of this young musician is, as I have implied, very fine and at all timed highly musical. His registrations are excellent and the detail of his part playing is first-class. Here is a rare collection, splendidly presented and recorded, which is very strongly recommended.’ International Record Review on Czech Music for Organ CHAN 10463
 

Tender is the North presents a programme that offers a glimpse into the rich treasure trove of Scandinavian organ music. This fascinating selection of works from Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden contains two premiere recordings - Nystedt’s Med Jesus vil eg fara and Másson’s Larghetto, written specifically for this programme and hitherto under-recorded such as Sibelius’s Intrada, Op.111a and Palmgren’s Preludes.


This recording from Coventry Cathedral should prove a fascinating and rewarding collection.

“This impressive recital sheds new light on the treasures of Scandinavia. Quinn’s playing is never less than enthralling and the organ – with Chandos’s perfectly balanced engineering – has never sounded finer.”

Malcolm Riley
 

Gramophone - July 2010

“…Iain Quinn takes us on a remarkable journey through some wonderful repertoire, played on the organ of Coventry Cathedral..” “…an eye-opening disc of rarely-heard music, performed with great conviction and musicianship.”

Martin Ford

The Organ - Spring 2010

“… Iain Quinn makes the most of this music on the magnificent Coventry organ.”

Andrew Thomson
 

Choir & Organ Magazine - May/June 2010

“… Few will have heard any of the eight works presented here or, like me, of some of the composers. However there is much to applaud…”  “The Coventry Cathedral organ thunders forth to great effect.”

Jeremy Nicholas
