Organ music / Malcolm Williamson ; Tom Winpenny, organ.
Malcolm Williamson (1931-2003), Master of the Queen's Music from 1975 until his death, was a gifted pianist and organist as well as a prolific composer. His music, which began to make an impact soon after his arrival in Britain from Australia in 1953, naturally includes a substantial number of works for the organ, among them the monumental Symphony of 1960.
