The new CD, ‘The Organs of St Mary’s, Finedon, Northamptonshire’ is now available.
Music by William Croft, John Stanley, J.S. Bach, L-N.Clérambault and others are performed, along with contemporary works by Robert Page and Kaja May, by Jonathan Harris. Back in 2014, when the Father Smith organ was restored by Holmes & Swift with support from Heritage Lottery, one of the aims of the project was to record the organ after the restoration, particularly to show its Neidhardt for a small city (1732) temperament.
The CD also features two tracks on the Collins chamber organ.
