Colin Walsh - Lincoln Cathedral Organ
Live from Lincoln Cathedral
Presented by Ian Skelly
Colin Walsh, Organist Laureate of Lincoln Cathedral, puts the cathedral's mighty 'Father Willis' organ, completed in 1898, through its paces in a spectacular programme of the virtuoso French music which is his particular speciality. He includes works by several of the most significant composers in 20th-century French organ literature, as well as the 19th-century Cesar Franck - Belgian by birth, but the father-figure of the 20th-century French organ style.
