There’s a joyful end-of-term quality to this fifth and final volume in Kevin Bowyer’s hugely enjoyable Organ Party series. All 18 tracks here are first recordings, with contrasts aplenty to show off King’s Lynn Minster’s III/60 organ (equipped with 12 ranks of original Snetzler pipes) to best effect and to showcase Bowyer’s copiously resourced, ripely expressed technique. Both combine to often thrilling ends in the gossamer delicacy of Charles Wels’s Celluloid Sketches, Carl Robrecht’s exuberantly playful Kinderlieder-Potpourri and Mons Leidvin Takle’s passionate and proud Young Spirit. There’s much else to enjoy, too, in a disc that gives great pleasure.
