Based on Bach

As part of the 300th anniversary celebrations of The Queen's College, Oxford, David Goode puts the famous organ there through its paces with music by, and inspired by Bach.

As part of the 300th anniversary celebrations of The Queen's College, Oxford, David Goode plays a wide-ranging programme rooted in Bach and specially devised to show off its famous organ. Built by the Danish firm Frobenius and installed in 1965, the uncompromisingly neo-baroque instrument was in the vanguard of the UK's classical organ revival, the perfect vehicle for this music from Germany, England and Scandinavia.

Presented live from The Queen's College, Oxford, by Martin Handley.
