George McPhee : The Organ of Paisley Abbey, played by George McPhee
Catalogue Number: Temp 102
Sorry, but this product is no longer available.
George McPhee has been in frequent demand as an organ recitalist and has broadcast and recorded frequently both as solo organist and as conductor, mostly with Paisley Abbey Choir. He has been Organist and Master of the Choristers at Paisley Abbey since 1963 and this CD was produced to celebrate his thirtieth anniversary there. The organ at Paisley Abbey is regarded as one of the finest in the country. Built in 1872/4 by Cavaillé-Coll, it has been considerably enlarged since, but in the last rebuild great care was taken to preserve the French pipework and to bring any later additions into line with the original style.
"Dr McPhee's playing is as impressive as ever. ...a dramatic, assured and well-projected performance of Reger's great masterpiece, whose climax is utterly breath-taking" (Paul Hale)
