Martin Baker, Master of Music and Choirs at Westminster Cathedral
We are delighted to present a few recent reviews on the CD by Martin Baker, Master of Music and Choirs at Westminster Cathedral, London, at the Fratelli Ruffatti organ of the famous Buckfast Abbey in England.
‘The Mussorgsky Pictures at an Exhibition provide ample opportunities to show off the wealth of aural effects from this instrument… Baker is on top form on this recording.’ (Choir & Organ Magazine)
‘It is something of the full orchestra that we hear in his performance, through magnificent colour schemes available from the Buckfast organs. It is a persuasive reading, with nuance, energy, and excitement.’ (Organists’ Review)
‘…Martin Baker’s musical playing and highly imaginative transcription…bring this disc to life. The organ has been excellently captured…and the disc and informative booklet are presented in an attractive collector’s case.’ (RSCM Church Music Quarterly)
