Andrew Sampson plays J. S. Bach on the
Mander Organ at St Matthew's, Westminster.
"Sampson's characterful playing exudes the love of the music and the organ. Providing plenty of contrasting colour, the recording combines an intimacy worthy of the building and instrument with a spaciousness to give warmth to the performances. The E flat Clavierübung Prelude and Fugue and the C minor Passacaglia frame ten assorted chorale preludes. A magnificent CD booklet contains stunning photographs and comprehensive notes, a model of how to communicate with one's listenership, making it a must for followers of Mander instruments. 4 out of 5 stars."
