Product Description


A selection of organ music by Handel and his English contemporaries, played by internationally-respected early keyboard artist, Robert Woolley, on the 1766 Thomas Parker organ in the church of St. Mary and St Nicholas, Leatherhead. This instrument was reconstructed from original casework and pipework by the organ builders, Goetze & Gwynn, in 2007, and is a very rare example of organs from this period in England. This is the first recording of this delightful eighteenth-century instrument.
