Product Description


The Barossa Valley, located in the southern center of the country, is home to a number of wineries where some of Australia’s best wines are produced. It is also home to a number of historic organs built by Australians in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

On this CD, organists John Stiller and Christopher Dearnley guide a varied and fascinating tour through the wine country, playing works ranging from the Buxheim Organ Book to Moneta Eagles. A well-written and nicely-illustrated set of historical notes is found in the 16-page booklet included with the recording. This will save you the price of an excursion to Australia and the labor of much study. A visit to your wine merchant may complete the illusion of a tour of the countryside.
