Product Description

Thomas Heywood continues the tradition of delivering fantastic concerts on the Grand Organ of Melbourne Town Hall. A fine example of the symphonic school of organ building, the Town Hall organ handles the varied list of repertoire quite well. This recording celebrates the 10th Anniversary of the restoration of the instrument, originally built in 1929.
