Arthur Willis, organist/choirmaster of Ely Cathedral 1958-90, is celebrated on his 75th birthday (September, 2001) with a CD sampling his organ works as played by Jeremy Filsell on the 1995 Marcussen 4-88 at Tonbridge School Chapel. The largest of the works is Wondrous Machine! A Young Personís Guide to the Organ, borrowing Brittenís title and even a theme from Purcell, but it is a different theme and an entirely different work than Purcellís and highly effective as an organ demonstrator.
