Dignity and Impudence
This recording presents a winning combination of instrument, music, and performer.
– The American Organist March 2013
This is a superlative CD that should be on every organ music lover’s shelf. William’s playing is quite astounding: musicality, flawless technique and mind-boggling organ management come together in a diverse programme that shows both the dignity and impudence of the composer, performer and the Redcliffe organ.
– Organists’ Review Editors Choice
Here is an absolutely delightful recital of genuine rarities…The very wide dynamic range is expertly captured by the always-reliable Gary Cole with never a trace of distortion.
– Association of Anglican Musicians
It is great to hear the organ in St Mary’s Redcliffe. A complete history of the instrument and its specification are given in the CD booklet. William Saunders playing complements this fine instrument and the impressive ecclesiastical setting.This is a great CD that explores some little known repertoire.
William Saunders again demonstrates his flair for programming unusual and ear-catching music…. Saunders extracts the maximum amount of colour from the Brentwood Cathedral organ.
– Choir & Organ, March/April 2011
Sparkling performances … The wit shines through the entertainment thanks to the player’s effortless technique and choice of registrations… A most engaging CD, well recorded and beautifully played. Highly recommended.
