John Joubert celebrates his 90th birthday on 20 March.

He was born in Cape Town in 1927 and settled in Britain after arriving as a student in in 1946 and has become a stalwart of British musical life.

His organ music, recorded here as part of the 90th-birthday celebrations, ranges from the miniature to the monumental.

It often reflects Bach’s influence, and always demonstrates the balance of craftsmanship and honesty of expression that has assured Joubert’s place in the affection of his audiences.

The booklet notes here are contributed by the composer himself and the organist, Tom Winpenny.

The recording was made on the mighty organ of St Alban’s Cathedral.

Tom Winpenny is Assistant Master of the Music at St Albans Cathedral. Previously, he was Sub-Organist at St Paul’s Cathedral, and during this time he performed for many major state occasions. He won First Prize and Audience Prize at the 2008 Miami International Organ Competition. Earlier in his career he held the post of Organ Scholar at Worcester Cathedral and then at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle, before spending three years as Organ Scholar at King’s College, Cambridge, where he graduated with a degree in music. With the Choir of King’s College, he gave concerts in the USA, Hong Kong and throughout Europe. His previous recordings include an album of works by Malcolm Williamson (Toccata Classics TOCC0246).

The Observer

16th April 2017


“Reflections on a Martyrdom from 1997 [is] brilliantly played here by Tom Winpenny. Attractive preludes on English hymn tunes and a thundering Passacaglia and Fugue make this a must for any aficionado.”

BBC Music Magazine

“what you would expect from a guide so consistently sympathetic, articulate and engaging”

MusicWeb International

August 2017

“The music is not only splendidly played but splendidly recorded too. Producer/engineer Andrew Post has done a fine job. The organ is beautifully recorded in the quiet passages and louder sections register thrillingly. This release is an important addition to the Joubert discography.”
