Robert Quinney performs a stunning recital of works by Elgar on the organ of Westminster Abbey. Quinney has been Sub-Organist there since 2004, performing a variety of celebrated occassions including the Royal Wedding in April this year.

This is Quinney’s second album with Signum, following a double album of recital works by Brahms, wagner and Dupré on the organ of Westminster Cathedral (SIG 089)(where Quinney was Assistant Master of Music from 2000-2004):

"His supreme artistry at the organ of Westminster Cathedral transcends the boundries of organ-playing, giving the listner a moving, magical experience." - Gramophone


"Quinney’s technique is impeccable and his registration spot on."  - BBC Music Magazine
 

"...Fans of transcritions shoud be ecstatic over this recording."

William J Gatens - American Record Guide - July/August 2012


                   Performance ****      Recording *****

"...Thoughfully programmed, compellingly played, Quinney’s Elgar entices."

Paul Riley - BBC Music magazine - November 2011


"... an appealing, stylishly played programme - a worthy companion to Quinney’s earlier Signum recording (SIG 089) from Westminster Cathedral"

Peter Lyman - International Record Review - October 2011
