Roderick Williams presents an hour of outstanding organ music

Joy and Frenzy from French composer, Jean Langlais. Howells pays touching homage to his Tudor forebears and we hear a wedding march that's determined to make the bride stumble.

French composer, Jean Langlais treads the fine line between joy and frenzy his Incantation pour un jour saint. Herbert Howells pays touching homage to his Tudor forebears and we hear a wedding march that seems determined to make the bride stumble. Roderick also features Widor's famous Toccata in the recording recommended, last month, by Radio 3's Record Review.
