Matthew Owens, currently Organist and Master of the Choristers at Wells Cathedral, continues his survey of Johann Pachelbel's organ music on British instruments. For volume II, Owens has opted for the Frobenius organ at Edinburgh's Canongate Kirk, renowned for its intimacy and fine pedigree; its sophisticated tones and colours are heard here in the service of Pachelbel's devout and wide-ranging inspiration.
“No reservations at all about Matthew Owens's first-rate playing. His articulation and ornamentation are always stylistically appropriate and he has the knack of choosing tempi which feel exactly right.”
