Volume 1 of the John Ellis Organ music was recorded by Ronald Frost and received much acclaim. This CD featuring the extremely talented young organist Robin Walker continues the theme of music which is very firmly in the English Cathedral tradition, but which, as several critics have commented, also displays a very remarkable and distinctive voice - and is as suitable for recital performance as much as within the confines of liturgical use. The brillaint Symphony is perhaps the prime example of this genre to be written in recent years. A recording we are deighted to have in our catalogue.
"Ranging from hymn-tune preludes to a sonata lasting over 20 minutes, the music has a distinctive, pleasantly astringent quality, and if it puts me in mind of anyone it is Hermann Schroeder, but only accasionally. The organ sounds well, in spite of having pipe-work from about half a dozen builders, and Robin Walker is a convincing advocate, both of the organ and the music."
