“Daniel Moult holds nothing back in his programme of 20th-century tours de force, the video camera giving the best possible vantage point of the console...Dupré's Trois Préludes et Fugues are rattled off with the lightest of touches...One of this disc's great virtues is that nothing outlasts its welcome.”
“Ultimately this disc is a real winner ... A stylish and captivating player to watch ... Daniel Moult's playing is, from the outset, dazzling, and does much to demonstrate the versatility of the superb organ at Bridlington Priory.”
