David Goode (organ of Trinity College Chapel, Cambridge)

Read Presto's complete review of this disc here.

“One thing that immediately leaps out is the use of some quite extensive ornamentation – not merely mordents and so forth, but brillante scalic flourishes leading into cadences...The range of colours Goode draws from the Trinity College Cambridge chapel organ is also impressive...Bach's compositional genius is shown in the best possible light by Goode's thoughtful performances.” David Smith, Presto Classical, 5th February 2016
