ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This CD is a unique collection of organ works by well-known composers and contemporary composers. It includes several works by Colin Decio:- " When my father became head-caretaker of Pates Grammar School in Cheltenham I was allowed to play the school organ in the hall in an evening when no one else was around so this was a very exciting opportunity to play very loud!
And a great opportunity to to explore all the fascinating sounds that the organ could produce. It was this experience that helped me to compose for the organ. My first work was inspired by the words of JRR Toklien, taken from The Lord of the Rings. When the hobbits become trapped in a Barrow by Wights, Frodo suddenly hears the chant - 'Never 'til the sun fails and the moon is dead'. It was the rhythm of this rhyme that gave me the opening theme for the Prelude, which was then developed further throughout the rest of the work and the Toccata. The second work I created used the words from the second part of the rhyme '...and the moon is dead'. This became a set of variations, which build slowly to a catastrophic climax involving the organist playing as many notes as possible with both forearms! We always have to ask if the organ can take this kind of treatment before performing it in a concert. The quiet and sublime Prelude makes much use of the pedals. Processional is a glorious wedding piece. And the Study 'joy and the reason for it' is an organ study, which loosens the fingers, and the mind!"
