Harrison organ in St Wilfrid’s Church is clearly a gem of its time. Typical of the period, it is well built, well bred and unlikely to offend. Much the same can be said about the music and interpretation on this recording, with its Rheinberger Sonata and a well-mannered Bach Prelude & Fugue. Two charming pieces by Ernest Farrar are a good choice for this recording and the Spanish Triptico del Buen Pastor a welcome distraction. The whole is summed up by David Halls’s own Sound the trumpet, which harks back to the glory days of Elgar and Walton with a few 21st-century quirks.
