Product Description

In a 2-CD set, Anthony Hammond, plays César Franck’s Three Chorals and Charles-Marie Widor’s Symphony No. 5 on the famous four-manual, 92-rank organ built by Harrison & Harrison in 1962 for the new Coventry Cathedral edifice, the earlier cathedral and its organ having been destroyed in World War II. On the second CD, Anthony Hammond improvises a five-movement Symphony in homage to Widor, a Choral in homage to Franck, a Prelude on the Coventry Carol, and Figures at a Crucifixion: Three Studies after a Work by Francis Bacon.
